Wash Your Hands, Not Your Poultry (or other meat)

Just in time for the Holidays!

This post from the UW-Extension FYI site Safe and Healthy: Preparing and Preserving Food at Home entitled “Wash Your Hands, Not Your Poultry” explains why it is not necessary to wash poultry before cooking. In fact, it may cause illness and spread germs around your kitchen.

This post includes a handout and a YouTube video from New Mexico State University shows the distances that germs can fly in your kitchen when washing poultry.
