Rogue bloke captured eating raw chicken drumsticks after trip to supermarket

Rogue bloke captured eating raw chicken drumsticks after trip to supermarket

The barefoot man was wasting absolutely no time in tucking into the freshly purchased food.

You wouldn't be alone if you like to duck into your local supermarket for a quick snack and devour it just after paying.

Whether it be crisps, sweets or some freshly cooked meat, there's no shortage of foods that can be knocked back straight out of the packet.

However, there are some food items that definitely should go through some form of being cooked before you let it slide down your throat to protect your health.

That message is being directed at one bloke who was captured inside what looks to be a shopping centre tucking into a snack.

Photos shared on the S**t Adelaide Instagram page shows the anonymous barefoot man on an escalator eating a raw chicken drumstick.

The caption said: "A nutritious and delicious lunch of fashionably rare chicken at Westfield Marion."

Naturally, the comments section was pretty wild.

One person wrote: "He’s so cooked, the chicken gets charred on the way down."

Another added: "This king is so busy hustling he doesn’t have time to waste siting down to eat, or putting shoes on, or cooking his food. Few understand this grindset."

A third said: "What and absolute savage, starts from the middle of the pack instead of working from left to right."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says eating raw chicken can pose a significant risk to a person's health.

The website states more than one million Americans get sick every year from 'contaminated poultry'.

"Chicken can be a nutritious choice, but raw chicken is often contaminated with Campylobacter bacteria and sometimes with Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens bacteria," the CDC says.

"If you eat undercooked chicken, you can get a foodborne illness, also called food poisoning.

"You can also get sick if you eat other foods or beverages that are contaminated by raw chicken or its juices."

Considering this moment in Adelaide was captured in what looks to be a room temperature environment and straight out of the packet, the man might have faced a pretty brutal few days.

A woman who boasts about her raw meat diet says people need to be careful if they want to adopt this type of lifestyle.

Mimi Graff told the Daily Star there are ‘legitimate risks associated with the consumption of raw meat’.

"Since I love eating raw chicken I feel fortunate to live in a country with strict protocols regarding salmonella," she said.

"The controversy is not surprising or upsetting. I am very grateful for the thousands of supporting viewers I have amassed and their comments that make me laugh everyday."

But still, you should definitely cook your chicken meat all the way through if you want to lower the risk of getting sick.
