Sweden: Don't eat fresh chicken

11 March, 2017

"I urge the public to avoid fresh chicken to reduce the risk of contracting an infection from campylobacter. It is unlikely that we in Sweden since last summer suddenly started being careless when cooking chicken, and there must be other reasons behind the increase in the number of cases." Signar Mäkitalo, the head physician in charge of infectious diseases in the Gävleborg region, wrote in a press statement.
