The Food Standards Agency (FSA) today published the second set of results from the third year of their survey of campylobacter contamination on fresh chickens at retail. Campylobacter is the biggest cause of food poisoning in Scotland, and research has indicated that 55-75% of human cases in Scotland are associated with chicken. Reducing the levels of campylobacter infection is therefore a priority for Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and we have been working closely with the FSA to promote action by producers and retailers to reduce the levels of contamination in UK-produced chicken.
