Recent research observed consumers as they purchased and then brought home raw poultry products. At the store and at home, consumers demonstrated behaviors that could lead to cross-contamination of germs from raw poultry. Based on this research, BAC Fighters are urged to work with consumers on Don’t Touch and Check Temp for safe poultry handling. Target audiences for Don’t Wing It are parents of young children, and older adults. We’ve created many free tools for reaching these important audiences. Don’t Wing It makes it easy for you to build safe poultry handling into your consumer outreach programming! Remember to follow and re-Tweet @Fight_BAC for reminders about why the safe handling of raw poultry is so important to good health.
