Disinfectant Wipes Are Highly Effective At Reducing Poultry Preparation Risk

May 12, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who tested the effectiveness of disinfectant wipes on typical countertop materials after preparation of chicken found they reduced the risk of Campylobacter jejuni infection by up to 99.2 percent. People cooking chicken and other poultry don’t need to ingest Campylobacter bacteria to get sick. That’s why it’s critical to wipe kitchen surfaces clean and wash the hands after poultry preparation. Surfaces tested successfully with the disinfectant wipes included granite, laminate and ceramic tile. The researchers said the wipes would also be effective in reducing food poisoning caused by E.coli, Salmonella, and noroviruses.
