A survey across the nation found that nearly 50% of the people washed uncooked poultry in a manner which increases the spread of bacteria. Washing chicken under a tap with all the water splashing out can be a potential source of infection as the bacteria spreads everywhere. Not many people may know that even a small amount of contamination such as from the remnants on a used knife is enough to cause infection.  

The risks of Salmonella and e-coli loom large while handling home-cooked poultry.
