About half of the raw chicken breasts in a nationwide sampling carried antibiotic-resistant superbug bacteria, a U.S. consumer group said on Thursday, calling for stricter limits on use of the medicines on livestock.
It could be more difficult to treat people if they became ill after eating chicken with the antibiotic-resistant bacteria, said Consumer Reports, which describes itself as the worlds largest independent product-testing organization. [
Consumers should cook poultry to 165 degrees F (73.8°C) to kill bacteria and take steps, such as using a separate cutting board for raw meat, to avoid cross-contamination of other foods, Consumer Reports said.

Chicken is probably the most "overcooked" item we eat. We roast it, make soup, precook it etc etc
Martha Stewart got salmonella poisoning this year. Ironic because she raises her own poultry....all free range of course.

These birds mostly come from factory farms, not yards.
