Nearly three-quarters of supermarket chickens contain potentially deadly bug

File photo dated 29/08/14 of a raw chicken as the latest rates of campylobacter contamination of fresh shop-bought chickens will be published today by the Food Standards Agency (FSA). PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Thursday May 28, 2015. In February, the FSA reported that contamination had increased since November, with every major retailer failing to meet targets to reduce the bug. The FSA said then that the cumulative results from the first three quarters of its year-long survey of fresh chickens found 73% tested positive for the presence of campylobacter, up from 70% in November and 59% in August. The FSA's survey - the full set of results of which is published today - has tested around 4,000 samples of whole chickens bought from UK retail outlets and smaller independent stores and butchers. Campylobacter is killed by thorough cooking and can be limited by careful hygiene but it is the most common form of food poisoning in the UK, affecting an estimated 280,000 people a year.
