Have you got any figures how many U.S. citizens have died through eating chlorinated chicken.? Considering the North American diet is mostly junk I reckon the death rate is pretty low apart from steakhouse syndome obesity and high cholesterol levels.
Chicken is one of the most bug blighted meat to be consumed. Many people in the UK have died from Salmonella because of poor preparation and hygiene practice. BBQs were the worst offenders for killing vulnerable elderly people who ate undercooked bug ridden chicken in the UK. I was always advised to microwave or wash and ensure chicken was totally defrosted before cooking so if chlorinated chicken is less likelier to cause death I am happy to eat it.
Glad I don't eat meat - this is one less thing in life I have to worry about

Retro, who mentioned deaths from Chlorochicks?

If the reason you want chemicals in your chicken is because you can’t cook then fair play.

Wash ur chicken in lemon and apple cider vinegar, it will be better than just water but can’t garuntee no sam and ella in ur chicken
Cook it at 200deg....problem solved.
As long as food is clearly labelled, I shall be content to look out for myself.
Don't buy it from supermarkets then - pay a decent price to proper producers who care about their products.
Surely, if you’re TheDevil, cooking food to eradicate ‘bugs’ isn’t a problem. All those flames?
Don't wash raw chicken, you'll spread bacteria not reduce it.
Does it smell bleachy?
If it's deemed safe to eat and tastes okay I'll eat it.
I think this is over-hyped.
I read in the media somewhere, some time ago now, that a body the US had investigated and found that chlorinated chicken did result in a small additionan number of cases of illness and death. But that's not the main issue. The main issue is that low standards for the livestock means a worse life for them, and by ignoring their needs the producers can undercut produce from those adhere to decent farming practices. It would mean that the market became an uneven "playing field", and it would create pressure to lower our own standards. It needs to be nipped in the bud.

The last I heard was that the government wasn't prepared to legislate against it yet; but that's some way from betraying the nation, and the farming industry. I think we need to wait until it's generally understood to have been dropped, then you have a good reason for a lockdown breaking rally outside parliament.

provided its labelled, what is the problem? Actually even if its not labelled providing that british chicken and the products that contain it are labelled, again what is the problem?
The problem is that would mean that the market became an uneven "playing field", and it would create pressure to lower our own standards. Not everyone cares enough to avoid the cost incentive, many who cope presently would suddenly start claiming that they couldn't afford to socreating the market: therefore labelling doesn't solve the overall issue.
OG the market is not even now. It is permitted to import food from countries with lower care standards than our own, eg foie gras.
Is there home production of foie gras ?
If there is, there ought not be.
there isn't OG but import is permitted.
I only eat meat from animals and birds bred, slaughtered and butchered in the UK and supplied by my butcher who makes his own pies, sausages and faggots.
