US - Chicken is safe to eat. The Food & Drug Administration says it is not raising any alarms about consumption of chicken, says the National Chicken Council (NCC).

3-Nitro has been used to maintain good health in chicken flocks for many years, according to NCC. It is used in many, but not all, flocks. When used, 3-Nitro is given according to label directions approved by FDA.

Chicken companies will continue to safeguard chicken flocks because healthy flocks are needed to produce healthy food for people. Consumers can continue to buy and eat chicken as they always have.
