Don't Clean Chicken
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
If you wash your chicken to get rid of germ, you could accidentally make yourself sick.
Food safety researchers say washing raw chicken can spread bacteria like Salmonella or E. Coli.
The water sprays the germs as far as three feet.
Experts also say washing chicken doesn't get all the bacteria off it anyway.
You can just cook your chicken all the way through to be safe.
