Can you teach your Aunt to "not wash chicken"?

"We’re doing a campaign to encourage people not to wash raw chicken in the autumn" I said, matter-of-factly. "Oh" they said. Tumbleweed.

Don’t wash your chicken!

"Wait, what? You said don’t wash the chicken? But we’ve always washed the chicken - Granny used to wash the Christmas turkey too; I thought it was covered in germs!?"

Don’t wash your chicken!

As a microbiologist, I am usually my family’s first port of call for food safety advice (although I don’t believe my brother really needed a microbiologist to tell him not to eat the beef casserole that had been sitting in the back of his car for two days!).
