AK, FYI, my chickens were actually cooked into dry oblivion. I got it from the raw chicken handling it. I dont know, I'm pretty good at washing my hands, etc. I didnt use gloves though....

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

If you cook to the old standard of 165F for at least 5 minutes, there will be no risk of salmonella from the food. However, there should be no salmonella on chickemn it comes from poor processing. Once you get it home, you can get cross-contamination from a lot of sources, spray, tools, not washing hands, board or counters, all manner of ways.

Didn't mean to come across as cavalier. I agree, the Salmonella aren't afraid either. Since any poultry, Foster Farms or not, has a risk of salmonella, you can't ever miss a step in the process. Don't seem to have missed a step yet, but won't say it can't happen to me in the future.

The biggest problem is when it gets into things that are NOT designed to be cooked, usually via cross contamination.

My brother almost died when he was little from salmonella. He got it from ice cream. A truck used to haul Schwans milk had been used for raw eggs and not cleaned properly in between loads. There was a big class action law suit etc.

The most difficult thing was, we couldn't figure out what he was sick with. He had not eaten anything typically associated with salmonella, no eggs, no chicken, etc. We had all eaten the ice cream, but only once...he had it every night before bed for a couple weeks.

Most people don't cook ice cream to 165, salmonella can be very dangerous if it gets into the wrong product.

Those 250 or so cases of salmonella have occurred over the last almost 12 months, across the nation. Doesn't strike me as a big number at all. I always treat chicken like it is tainted and I always wear gloves. Don't want that sickness...

Last week I bought a multi pack of thighs from the San Ramon Costco. When I heard
about the outbreak I checked the numbers on my package. Sure enough I got a number match, P7632. Took them back this morning and got a full refund. I just don't
want to take a chance. It's just not worth it.

Default Samonella outbreak

There are some intresting short films of food prep exersises where the food is sprayed with flouresent marker that is visiable under special light. It is enlightening to watch while the food is being handeled and preped because the film editor has made it so the marker glows and you witness the moment cross contamination happens.

Those 3 numbers, 7632, 6137 and 6137A are the only ones I see or have seen for a long time here in Northern California. I was at Costco today.... 7632. Went to the grocery store....6137. I cook that stuff all the time without problems. Bogus scare!

So my girl has been freaking out about this since chicken is about the only thing she eats, and I just noticed that we have 1 single breast in the freezer with one of the dreaded numbers on it

We bought it in one of those individually wrapped bonus packs at the local king soopers about a week ago (before the scare), marinated it in some delicious scotts Mediterranean marinade, and they came out great - possible salmonella and all. Mmmmm salmolicious!

Nobody got sick - so I guess the last one is safe to eat . King Soopers (kroger) has been freaking out and has pulled all the simple truth organic, and foster farms chickens off the shelf, put up signs all over the store, AND left us both pre-recorded voicemails 3 TIMES
