The debate is still not settled for many people!

However, according to Health Canada,never rinsed poultry before using it; water splashing can contribute to the spread of bacteria!

In addition, it is very important to disinfect countertops, cutting boards and utensils before and after food preparation. Use a disinfectant for the kitchen (following the instructions on the container) or a solution of bleach (5 ml of bleach in 750 ml of water), and rinse with water.

Keep raw poultry cold, bacteria proliferate rapidly at room temperature. Cook the poultry in the two to three following day of purchase. If you do not intend to cook it for that period of time, you should freeze it.
