    The letter States when cooking to 165° then you can have confidence in Empire.


    Confidence that what?
    Why be vague?

    • Anon says:

      Dovid, they are saying as long as you handle raw chicken properly and cook it to the correct temperature, their product is safe to eat. Bacteria are killed when heated to the 165 degrees.

      • Ge'onus says:

        Exactly, the way I understand it is that even contaminated chicken is safe and risk free when fully cooked.

  • cooking says:

    I hope their bottom line is not cooked!
