A study of cross-contamination of food-borne pathogens in the domestic kitchen in the Republic of Ireland

This work looked at cross-contamination in the domestic kitchen during preparation of a roast chicken lunch. The chickens were found to be contaminated with Salmonella, Campylobacter, Staph. aureus or E. coli, which were subsequently found on hand and food contact surfaces after food preparation, demonstrating cross-contamination in the kitchen during meal preparation.
