This seems even more worrying.

So you've sorted out that solid fuel boiler that you thought was giving you a bit of a cough and then the wife says it's chicken for dinner but hold on is the chicken quite as safe as you thought it was.

"is the chicken quite as safe as you thought it was."

Who knows? the supermarkets have reacted rapidly to this, and as far as I know, there hasn't been any official report on the FSA's investigation into allegations made by ITV and the Guardian newspaper.

Neither (as far as I'm aware) have their been any recorded cases of food poisoning attributable to eating chicken meat from the supplier in question.

You need to cook all "fresh" chicken well as a high proportion have e. coli or salmonella.

This will shock some. If you flush the inside of your chicken with a very dilute chlorine solution, you will successfully kill the nasties and be as safe as houses

That is what they do in USA

Bleach, in other words is what they use, and once it gets onto the meat you will never get rid of the smell..

Americans are obsessed with Bleach and also White Vinegar and Baking Soda for cleaning things.

Tesco were knocking 50p off their chickens sourced from this supplier yesterday but the display didn't seem to be attracting many shoppers.

Tesco have altered their advertising to exclude the 'reared exclusively for Tesco' kidology since the exposure that the same production line supplies all the major supermarkets .

FYI, about 95% of Lidl's fresh chicken available in Scotland is clearly labelled Scottish chicken with a St Andrew's Cross flag. Some of it is labelled UK with a Union Jack flag. Furthermore, I think most of the processed quick chicken meals contain chicken from other continents ... Asia, usually.

PS, I like to cook whole chicken in pressure cooker ... it takes about 45-55 minutes and the juices can be made into a very nice chicken soup stock.

I think one of the conclusions from this latest exposure is that just because a label states something, it ain't necessarily so.
