This may surprise you but chicken stock is a liquid!
Seriously? You made it with chicken, right? Do you think adding water somehow removes bacteria from the rest of the food in the pot? There could be E. coli on the veggies or botulinum on the herbs, too. Red meat is not the only food that can be contaminated with bacteria.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
