97 percent of chicken contaminated with bacteria, Consumer Reports finds

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Chicken is the most popular meat in America, but Consumer Reports’ tests of more than 300 raw chicken breasts found potentially harmful bacteria in 97 percent of their samples.

“I thought I wasn’t going to make it there for a little bit. I was that sick,” Schiller recalled. “I was so sick I couldn’t move around, I didn’t want to talk, I just wanted to lay there.”
