Raw chicken risks

More than half the fresh chicken products we tested contained campylobacter. Is enough being done to reduce risks from the bug?

Irradiation

The WHO advises that irradiation is a proven and effective way to reduce campylobacter contamination down to almost zero. However the public is scared by such big words and refuses to consider this as an option. You can't have it both ways, people. Now you know why the US is so big on feeding antibiotics to hens, and the problems that has caused. We could have solved this problem years ago, but thanks to general ignorance, we now have two problems.
