The Centers for Disease Control tweeted a warning to consumers not to wash raw chicken, and some people took it personally.

The CDC says the reasoning behind not washing chicken is that it can spread germs from the raw meat to other food and kitchen utensils.

Twitter users, however, are repulsed by this idea.

So the question remains: to wash, or not to wash?
