    • individual animal not being stunned, killed what ever before it was hit with scalding water.
    • which results in an horrific death and the animal voiding its bodily waste in projectile and this contaminates the other chicken around it and then to get past that stink the chicken meat is then washed/ soaked.. in strong chlorinebleach.

    This is one reason I eat very little meat, no red meat at all and only free-range poultry. There is such a lot of ill-treatment of animals when they're farmed and even when they're slaughtered even though we have modern humane methods available. Do you mean chickens are dropped alive into scalding water? I thought they were stunned then beheaded. Damn this world sometimes.

    Never ever let your wife do the cooking for you, that’s men’s work…

    Chicken processing practices vary a lot, some places have pretty good practices, some not so much. Many places are moving away from the methods that caused the problem with your chicken to more humane methods, they have a conveyor belt that gradually changes the content of the air so the chicken dies peacefully, no shock needed.

    There is also a huge problem with antibiotic resistance bacteria and a huge cause of that is antibiotic use in chickens, so more important than organic is looking for chicken that is raised without antibiotics.

    In the U.S., Perdue Farms made the switch to antibiotic free chicken starting in 2007 and today all their chicken is raised antibiotic free.

    From the book "Big Chicken" by Maryn McKenna, from an NPR story.

    When we give animals antibiotics, those antibiotics, for the most part, are given in their food and water. So they go into the animal's guts. They make some of those bacteria [in the gut] resistant. ... That bacteria contaminates [the animal's] meat. We eat the meat. And then we develop the foodborne illnesses that ... happen to be antibiotic-resistant. ...

    The terms "cage free" means nothing when buying chicken, meat chickens are never put in cages, hormone free also means nothing, it's illegal to use hormones in chicken.

    McKenna's aim in writing the book is not to scare people away from eating poultry; rather, she hopes to improve the quality of the chicken we consume. "I think meat eating is going to remain with us as a culture," she says. "Therefore, I want to see meat producing get better, get better for the animals and also get safer for us. I do think it's possible to get there."

    Sounds like someone was trying to terminate you. I suggest you review your enemies list.

    I wonder why if it smelled so vile before it was cooked why would you eat it?

    Zeb, I see a post you made a few minutes ago. Glad you're still with us!

    Zeb, it is my understanding that all commercially processed chicken in this country (Australia) is washed in chlorine solution. Sometimes the residue/aroma is quite strong in my experience. I was in the meat industry for 21 years.

    I try to avoid commercially processed food but that ain't easy even tho we have a semi rural lot with fruit veges and chickens grown on site.

    Hope you stay well
