CANADA - A report has found that 83% of 525 chickens tested were infected with either campylobacter or salmonella bacteria.

The chickens were all purchased from supermarkets, bulk retailers, gourmet shops, and natural food stores from 23 different states.

Government agencies now need to act if consumers are to trust the chicken according to Geoffrey Martin, the director of the magazine consumer science.

Federal regulation is “beyond overdue,” says Jean Halloran of the Consumers Union, which publishes the magazine. “They may criticize our testing methodology but they’re not doing any testing at all.”
