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.
📢📢📢 Anyone who does not wash their chicken is just nasty— Rascheem kitson (@RascheemK) April 28, 2019
Dont @ me
Please DO wash the chicken. Especially chicken. Then WASH the sink— Hello there (@2much2todo) April 26, 2019
So the question remains: to wash, or not to wash?
