Do not wash raw chicken

Cooking will kill any bacteria, including campylobacter, while washing chicken can spread germs by splashing.

Wash used utensils

Thoroughly wash and clean all utensils, chopping boards and surfaces used to prepare raw chicken. Wash hands with soap and warm water after handling raw chicken.

Cook chicken thoroughly

Make sure it is steaming hot all the way through before serving. Cut in to the thickest part of the meat and check that it is hot with no pink meat and that the juices run clear.
