    Well I bought some chicken from Tesco in the chillded part and ate it. It tasted soggy and now I know why, it needed to go in the oven for 14 minutes.
    I have such a sore back now, are the two things related?

    Not sure if the two things are related, but eating under cooked chicken is not good at all.

    No.

    You'll feel a bit 'soggy' yourself though.

    Chances are that nothing will happen, food in this country is exceptionally safe.

    You may however get some form of gastroenteritis; vomiting & diarrhoea. Watch for bloody diarrhoea with mucus, if this happens seek help. Otherwise, just keep well hydrated and try to keep eating, symptoms should pass within a week.

    dont think they would be related =S

    but raw chicken isnt good! all sorts of things could be in it. inc salmonella which isnt nice.
    not really all that much you can do now though is there.. just sit tight & hope you dont come down with food poisoning or something.

    im a little puzzled as to how you could eat a whole pack of raw chicken without noticing though really

    Best not to eat raw chicken, but the cause of food poisoning is generally bad food standards rather than being undercooked. You'll probably be fine but if you start getting an upset stomach go to the chemist and see what they can recommend.

    ohh. well if it was from the chilled food counter & only wanted 14mins of cooking it probably wasnt undercooked at all. probs just wanted warming up. i wouldnt worry about it.

    If it was from the chilled counter then it will have been pre-cooked. Don't worry about it.

    Im sure the chicken was feeling far worse being kept in cramped conditions, with the sole purpose of its existance to be killed and eaten. My heart bleeds for you with a sore back.

    Ha. Well not 'ha' at the chicken, but 'ha' at thinking people are bothered about your views.

    I wouldnt worry too much. I'm sure you'll be fine. If it only wanted re-heating or a little but of further cooking then it shouldnt give you food poisoning.

    If you ate it straight from the fridge as well, its not like it was covered in bacteria and things, it would have been more dangerous if it had been lurking around.

    I'm no Doctor, but I wouldn't have thought that a sore back is a symptom caused by eating undercooked meat... point is, was it precooked or totally raw. If it was the latter I'm sure you would've noticed before eating it.
