Here is an article from the USDA which explains their position against washing meat.

I may be the odd ball, if it is bloody, I always rinse it off and pat dry. Always chicken pieces.

I wonder if they do that in restaurants, too. Probably...

I rinse whole chickens, sometimes chicken pieces and will always dry with paper towels.

I also rinse whole fish with skin like trout, salmon etc.

Never rinse beef, pork, lamb, but will wipe with paper towel.

Exactly you need a good amount of exposure to germs and bacteria to keep your immunity up.I have friends that practically live in an autoclave they clean,clean constantly they get sick all the time especially when they travel.There is a theory that alot of people develop allergies and get sick alot because they are too clean and dont get enough exposure to germs and bacteria so they actually lose their natural immunities because they are not exposed enough.I believe this, as we rarely get sick we are by no means slobs but dont feel the need to disinfect every thing all the time. I think its just another marketing ploy to sell more products.
