FSA names worst supermarkets in contaminated chicken tests

Seventy percent of fresh chickens sold in shops in the UK are contaminated with the bacteria Campylobacter, according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

Campylobacter is the biggest cause of food poisoning in the UK.

The FSA has published a list of the worst supermarket offenders, with the highest rate found in chickens being sold by Asda. Tesco was found to have relatively low rates of contamination.

Business correspondent Emma Simpson reports.
