Americans eat more chicken than any other meat. Chicken can be a nutritious choice, but raw chicken is often contaminated with Campylobacter bacteria and sometimes with Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens bacteria.
If you eat undercooked chicken, you can get a foodborne illness, also called food poisoning. You can also get sick if you eat other foods or beverages that are contaminated by raw chicken or its juices.
CDC estimates that every year in the United States about 1 million people get sick from eating contaminated poultry. Ten-year-old AJ was one of those people. Watch AJ and his mother talk about the serious Salmonella infection he got from eating chicken.
CDC estimates that Salmonella causes more foodborne illnesses than any other bacteria. Chicken is a major source of these illnesses. In fact, about 1 in every 25 packages of chicken at the grocery store are contaminated with Salmonella.
Chicken coops and yards together shall be large enough to provide at least 16 square feet per chicken. Fenced enclosure space can be added to the coop space to add up to the minimum number of square feet. Coops cannot be taller than 10 feet. Coops cannot exceed 50 sq. ft.
An inspection of the proposed chicken keeping site will not be conducted by the Department of Neighborhood Services as part of the permitting process. DNS will inspect and determine compliance with the ordinance on a complaint basis or if it believes a violation may be occurring. DNS may take enforcement action it deems appropriate if violations are noted.
DNS will not offer advice or provide suggestions regarding the practice of keeping chicken. For example, DNS will not suggest how to build a chicken coop or enclosure nor advise on where to acquire knowledge related to chicken keeping.
Chicken has well-documented health benefits, but different parts and preparation methods factor into how healthy your chicken-based meal turns out. Darker cuts like the thigh and drumstick contain higher caloric content than lighter cuts like the breast. Keeping the skin or frying chicken will also add saturated fat.
The lean protein in chicken is an excellent source of amino acids. Our bodies use amino acids to build muscle tissue, something that is particularly important as we age. Studies have also shown that higher protein intake helps to maintain bone mineral density. Eating chicken can help to build stronger muscles and promote healthier bones, decreasing the risk of injuries and diseases such as osteoporosis.
Research suggests that 25-30 grams of protein per meal can help us feel more full. Protein rich meals can make us feel fuller despite us eating less, which helps to promote better weight management. Healthier weight leads to improvements in risk factors for heart problems such as high triglyceride levels and high blood pressure. A food rich in protein, chicken can help with weight management and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Properly store and cook your chicken to prevent foodborne illnesses. Cross contamination during cooking or leaving chicken to sit out for too long can lead to bacterial growth that will get you seriously sick.
If you have to cut your chicken, use a separate cutting surface and knife to avoid cross contamination with other foods. When finished, thoroughly clean and sanitize the cutting surface and any kitchen tools that touched the raw chicken. Always wash your hands between touching raw meat and any other food. 59ce067264
