I have these hospital wipes that Winthrop gives me. Every so often everything gets a hit from them. Including my hands after handling meats.

I'm lucky in that my chickens don't come sealed in plastic bags. I get mine from the "proper" butcher who kills his own (and his beef, pork and lamb as well).

In the unlikely event that I ever bought a bird in a bag from a supermarket and it turned out to be slimy it would go straight back to the shop and if the store quibbled I'd take it to the Environmental Health Dept at the local council offices. (An uncle and 2 cousins were qualified butchers and another is a Local Authority Meat Inspector overseeing several licenced slaughter houses)

I might just be lucky, but I've never had that happen. No funky chicken for me. See now I may have jinxed myself, my next package will be bad!

LOL Kayelle!
Another chicken washer and kitchen bleacher here, too. It's worked so far.

Mercy! I rinse my chicken really well, rubbing the water all over it. But I clean the sink and surrounding areas with Clorox Clean-Up afterwards.

No one here has gotten sick or died yet from my chicken rinsing, but it's probably a good idea to clean up the area after rinsing it.

I did read the article, and maybe taking the chicken out to the backyard and rinsing it with the hose is an idea, if you're really worried about bugs.

I do use a plastic cutting board for cutting up chicken and everything else. I got rid of my wooden ones quite a while ago.

Like many of you, I rinse my store-bought chicken to remove the "whatever" is on it. I probably break 5000 rules when fixin' chicken. I also scrub the daylights out of the sink et al both before and after working with the chicken. I'll buy the boneless breasts when they're on sale, rinse and blot dry each one, and place them individually in zip sandwich bags. Then I put those bags into freezer bags, stick a note in with them with the date they were packed, and file away in the freezer for a quick supper later. I see no reason to pay premium price for what amounts to Perdue "Perfect Portions". Besides, in our house chicken breasts are the new "365 Ways to Fix Hamburger" meat! Knock on wood, we've never had issues with anything.

CWS, LOVE your "chicken joke". I can imagine that line being delivered by Joanne Worley in her inimitable style!

Not exactly "latest news"

It's been recommended for a very long time.

I usually don't rinse meat of any kind.

I rinse chicken and any other meats after removing it from brine.
