Are you cooking your meat long enough and washing your hands before preparing a meal at home? If you said “yes,” you’re in the minority. According to a UC Davis study, which is published in the September/October edition of “Food Protection Trends,” home cooks routinely undercook chicken and rarely wash their hands. In fact, 65 percent of people studied in the report didn’t wash their hands before preparing a meal at home and only 10 percent of participants washed their hands for the recommended 20-second interval.
