I did know, and it's exactly what xtras has said. I'm not eating anything that has potentially harmful bacteria that's been covered up by chlorine.

Nope, not in this lifetime.


I guess the test would be to see if the rate of food poisoning from chicken in the US is much higher than in the UK. If it isn't there may not actually be a problem.


Well there's this:

And the food standards that Britain currently uses seem to be working—or working better than ours, at least. Americans get food poisoning at ten times the rate of people in the UK. Nearly 400 in the U.S. die from salmonella poisoning each year, while not a single person in England or Wales (together, home to nearly 90 percent of the UK’s population) died from the bacteria between 2005 and 2015.

Tumours are cut out of diseased animals rather than destroying the carcass, it's a good read.


Bear in mind though that it's the bacteria campylobacter that causes most cases of food poisoning from chicken, and the rate in the UK is higher than the US. Mind you when all's said and done this chicken thing is probably not so much about a genuine fear of getting sick, it's more to do with Brexit and wanting to portray any future UK-US trade agreement as a bad thing.

"For campylobacter, the UK study estimated 280,000 cases - about 450 cases per 100,000 people. The US study estimated 845,024 cases of campylobacter or about 300 cases per 100,000 people."

That's not Salmonella friend, CampB can be cooked off which is why it's best to serve risky food like chicken at above 65° , Salmonella is a whole new horror.

It's very robust and lives well on surfaces but will incubate at around 4°C, this is why Americans keep their eggs in the fridge.

Watched "The Trump Show" on BBC2 yesterday.

It was more entertaining than "The West Wing"!

You sound excited. I always feel slightly let down after committing to a sci-fi series. (BSG & The expanse spring to mind).
Only 29 episodes to catch up though if it's really good. I could do that in a month.
