Contaminated Chicken -- NPR's Jim Zarroli reports on a study by Consumer Reports magazine that found bacteria contamination in more than two-thirds of the chickens it purchased at supermarkets nationwide. Camplyobacter was found more often than salmonella... together the two organisms are believed to cause more than a million cases of food poisoning each year. Just a month ago, the Agriculture Department began a much more rigorous program of poultry safety... critics are using this study to argue that more needs to be done.
