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.
