USDA’s Recommendation: Do not wash raw poultry.

According to a new study from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS), even when consumers think they have thoroughly cleaned their hands and kitchen appliances after rising raw poultry, they are still at risk of illness since bacteria from raw meat can spread to other surfaces and affect the cleanliness of other food nearby. USDA recommends people not rinse their raw poultry and thoroughly sanitize their hands within 20 seconds of handling and preparing raw meat and poultry to prevent cross-contamination.
