Myth #4: Always rinse off poultry that comes from the supermarket.
Back away from the sink my friend. I know that it’s been pounded into your brain that you should unwrap that poultry and give it a good rinse in the sink. But beware that what you’re most likely doing is splashing all of those yummy surface pathogens over your sink, faucet, and surrounding area. Now, if you’re willing to give the sink a super-thorough scrub down it will be fine, but you’re better off simply cooking the poultry to a safe internal temperature (165 degrees for the breast meat and 175 for the thigh meat.)
I Love Greens. I was preparing a huge Holiday meal and I had placed the greens in the sink to wash. My ex boyfriends sister decided to help. She added Dawn dish detergent. I believe they were the cleanest greens I have ever eaten.
