Carnivores beware!

Consumer Reports has released a study evaluating contamination of store-bought chickens. They tested 382 chickens from 100 grocery stores in 22 states. The results were appalling--62% of the chickens were contaminated with Campylobacter, 14% were contaminated with Salmonella, and 9% were contaminated with both organisms. So if you're gonna eat it, you better cook it well!


  1. At least you can cook chicken; not many cook their canteloupe. During my six years on a government food safety subcommittee, I noticed the food most people in the group avoided was canteloupe.
