    The other day I read an article in the Sunday Times News Paper with the heading “Contaminated Chicken Kills 140 a Year”

    With the summer finally here in UK with nice balmy evenings, every other family is out to celebrate their “summer” with a barbecue. We have all had our share of upset tummies after a barbecue. The culprit is often an infected chicken.

    We are informed that a lot of factory processed chicken in UK is infected with a microbe called Campylobacter. The microbe is destroyed by “proper” cooking. So when you go for a barbecue next time think about “Campylobacter”. You either avoid the chicken or make sure it is “truly” well cooked!
