Discover magazine reports that there's been a surge of antibiotic resistant urinary tract infections traced to E. coli contaminated poultry. 75% of raw poultry is contaminated. "Handling the bacteria-ridden food could spread E. coli to the urinary tract." (p44, "Foodborne UTI's Direct from the Birds", Discover magazine,Oct 2013)

A search indicates this is year-old news. Please, very very thoroughly wash your hands, equipment, sink and counter after preparing raw poultry.
