Tips For Storing Chicken Meat In The Refrigerator
Hello tiur ida,
Thank you for the question.
Washing or not washing chicken before cooking it is often a debate. However, based on the recommendations of the CDC or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, raw chicken meat should not be washed, either before or after being stored in the refrigerator. Washing raw chicken can not kill bacteria, and it will risk the bacteria to spread to the surface of your kitchen furniture and cutlery. The bacteria in question are Campylobacter, Salmonella, E.coli, Shigella, etc., which are bacteria that can cause food poisoning, which are usually characterized by symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting. Cooking chicken at the right temperature is a way to kill the bacteria.
Here are other tips for managing raw chicken meat:
Washing hands before and after touching chicken and cooking utensils.
Use your own equipment for raw chicken.
Cook chicken until cooked, not to leave the red part.
Store raw chicken meat in a closed container.
It is better to thaw frozen chicken meat by leaving it in the refrigerator below than leaving it in the kitchen area. Or, you can thaw it by soaking cold water if chicken meat is in a plastic package.
Hopefully this information can help.
