Wow - guess I'm glad I don't live in Buffalo new York. Why is this information just now coming to light?

Good reason not to eat them.

One more reason to be a vegetarian!

That pun was just too good for them to pass up, I suppose.

Soon people will be eating poop on and plate with a little hot sauce on the side.

Don't forget many of those brands are shipped nationwide, so if anyone buy them anywhere, you are at risk! I doubt seriously that this problem is limited to Buffalo, NY!

If this is true in Buffalo it is almost certain to be in true every other area of the country. In short, you do not have to live in Buffalo to find your chicken contaminated.

I don't eat chicken wings or chicken at all. and I am glad I don't live in NY
it is all in the greed business and animal abuse business. people were healthier eating meat back on the farm where animals were treated with more humane care.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Seems like America is getting closer and closer to truly becoming the equivalent of a Third World country daily.

50% huh - that's not so much a crap shoot - although I like the scatological reference - as it is a coin toss. As a matter of fact, one of the last times I ate meat, I got m'self a good old case of food poisoning. That was at The Anchor Bar, in Buffalo, NY - where Buffalo Wings originated. I love irony.

Dash's has four locations, yet only two were listed. I wonder if the other two tested negative or simply weren't tested. I often shop at one of the locations that wasn't listed in the article, and it's really a great little supermarket! However, when it comes to poultry, I'm always very careful about washing it thoroughly before cooking and cooking it to a safe temperature. We've never had a problem.

When it comes to excellence in supermarkets, however, nothing tops Wegman's! When visiting other states, I've never seen anything that comes close to what the Wegman family has created. You'd have to visit one of their supermarkets to believe it! And to top it off, their prices are often lower than their competitors!

I read the local newspaper from front to back, and I hadn't seen this story! Thanks, Carrie!

Eeew, have never eaten a buffalo wing, and never will. Just how many other foods are contaminated that we don't know about??

We love buffalo wings, but when we have them, which is seldom, I make them myself. We just don't buy prepared foods. Besides being expensive, who knows what's in them? I'm sure chicken poop wouldn't be listed in the list of ingredients.
