One in five supermarket chickens are contaminated, according to consumer group Which?
The study of standard, free range and organic chicken samples from nine supermarkets found 18% were contaminated with campylobacter and 17% were contaminated with listeria.
Salmonella was present in 1.5% of samples.
The Food Standards Agency says tackling the bacteria is a key priority, and that if people follow cooking guidelines they should minimise the risk of getting ill.
Richard Lloyd, executive director of Which?, told BBC Radio 5 live Morning Reports the figures were "worryingly high".
