Don't Wash Your Chicken
A common misconception when preparing chicken for cooking is the need to rinse the poultry with water before it is cooked. In fact, the USDA recommends that you do NOT wash your chicken, as it increases the risk of spreading bacteria around the kitchen. Dr. Jennifer Quinlan helped to develop the "Don't Wash Your Chicken" campaign, as creative way to inform people about this mishandling.
