Washing Poultry in Sinks

The Breakdown

Washing poultry in sinks may lead to much splashing and a large radius of bacterial spread in and around the sink.

• Cooking poultry to a proper minimum internal temperature can destroy most bacteria that is present in the poultry.

Our Position

• Stop Foodborne Illness discourages consumers from washing poultry at home.

• Stop strongly supports the use of meat thermometers and education campaigns to inform consumers on safe cooking temperatures for poultry and on how to properly use these thermometers.
