I personally have a Google News section for “Bacteria”. I was shocked by the headlines I have read today:
How is this news? We have a general understanding around our house, “Raw chicken is the dirtiest thing you can bring into the house”. Even my four year old knows this. Through many years of research, countless studies have shown the quick adaptability of bacterial species to the over use of antibiotics. This has rendered most common drug treatments for bacterial infection useless.
However, bacteria have NOT adapted ability to resist some common treatments like alcohol, bleach, UV radiation, and heat. I do not recommend cleaning tomorrow night’s chicken with alcohol or bleach. I personally would go with heat. So, please, next time you want to make a chicken dinner, be safe and cook it as recommended.
