To everybody’s shock, it is learnt that most common form of food poisoning is due to superbug versions of Britain’s fresh chicken sold in supermarkets across the country. Common food poisoning bugs such as campylobacter, salmonella and E.coli are found on livestock farms.

In more than half of the chicken sold by major retailers, Campylobacter is found at low levels and this can spread to humans through handling and a failure to cook the birds thoroughly.

Another shocking thing is that some strains of the bacteria have mutated to develop a resistance to antibiotic medicines used by doctors to treat severe illness.

The medical experts have issued a warning saying that the emergence of superbugs that are difficult to treat with conventional antibiotics poses a huge health threat.
