    Dangerous foods: Uncooked chicken


    Food can be one of life’s great pleasures. However, it can also be very dangerous and at its worst can be fatal. One such food you need to be careful of especially when abroad in order to avoid a travel accident is chicken, or to be more precise uncooked chicken.

    Why could uncooked chicken cause an accident abroad?

    There is a chance that any chicken you prepare and/or eat could contain many different bacteria in its raw form, one of which is the well known campylobacter. In humans this can cause severe food poisoning for quite some time.

    If chicken is cooked properly then the risk of sustaining food poisoning and then having to make a claim for travel accident compensation decreases greatly as the bacteria dies when heated.

    How can I tell if chicken is uncooked or under-cooked?

    The main thing to look out for to help prevent you and others having a travel accident is the middle of the chicken. The chicken should be consistently white throughout the bird when cooked. If there is any pinkness then don’t be afraid of sending it back to the kitchen, they would prefer that than a travel accident compensation claim.

    If you are cooking the chicken yourself make sure you check the inside. Once checked also make sure to smell the meat before you cook it. If the meat has gone off it will have a horrible smell to it which will tell you to stay well clear of this meat to help prevent any mishap.
