In my opinion these are lovely and very easy no prep in the oven done just the job for busy mums and for 99p you can fill your freezer for some easy food after school, I got 6 bags no room for any more

Amend the title to just show 99p, sounds stupid but some people will think it is expensive chicken otherwise.

They are in the freezer section Mark other stuff there also like pulled pork, kebabs and the like plenty in the 2 stores around me, had them last night and very nice but that's my opinion others have more refined taste than mine as you can guess from the above comments, but there again its the way you conduct yourself that counts and the respect that you afford people.

Aint it funny how the most negative comments come from the 3 who don't have a deal between them, I find if I don't have something nice to say about some ones efforts to help others I say nothing. But they just cant help themselves can they

You don't flesh out your comment with any details but what you have got to realise is that there are a lot of chicken suppliers, with a lot of even smaller sub-contractors supplying them. Obviously some producers and processors are going to have better hygiene than others, but the supply chains to supermarkets chop and change month on month. So chickens in one supermarket may well be dirty one week and clean the next - and the week after dirty again. The quality of the hygiene in a processing factory may even vary shift to shift depending on the quality of the staff and supervision working at the time. So any chicken from any outlet may be contaminated with nasty bugs, such as campylobacter, no matter how much you pay for it.

The only way to be safe is to carry out proper kitchen hygiene to ensure other foods are not contaminated and that chicken is properly cooked.

That said I do think there could be efforts made by government to maybe introduce maximum limits for contamination and fine companies if they failed the standards. That would give the industry the good kick up the backside that it clearly needs to improve safety across the board. Can't see it happening though because it would be "Big Government" and Dave doesn't like to introduce anything that might hit the profits of his pals in big business. I expect a hot air "robust industry led initiative" will be the order of the day and so nothing at all will change and people will keep getting very ill and sadly some dying.

Edit: Well blow me down, days after writing my comment I saw a report, on I think BBC news, about one of the largest chicken processing plants in the UK, near Hereford I think they said. Anyway they had the boss of the plant saying how they are spending a huge amount of money on novel new hygiene and processing techniques to reduce campylobacter. So hopefully this will be mirrored across the industry and chicken will become safer - hurray!

Citation needed.

I think Asda was the worst followed by either tesco or Sainsburys iirc. You couldn't make your conclusion from the available evidence ;). Plus these are frozen as opposed to fresh. They all did relatively terrible though. Good job everyone practices basic food safety and cooks their food properly.

Not you two anti-Aldi trolls again! Or are you in fact one and the same person liking your own posts?

Is that just a misunderstanding on your part, or a downright lie? Because it is simply untrue - check out the facts and you'll find that Aldi was too small a sample to test fully. Asda was the big problem.
I know this is probably a pointless posting as this thread is over a week old, but I found the BBC News article about how one of the biggest UK poultry plants is aiming to tackle Campylobacter. It's a very interesting read, and video, for anyone interested in food production and safety.
