    Sainsbury's are launching touch-free packaging as millennials are apparently 'anxious' about touching raw meat. :lol: I despair for them, but to make matters worse, the eco-warriors are up in arms about the extra plastic needed for this packaging. I find the whole 'raw meat' think staggeringly ridiculous, personally. What is the world coming to? :lol:

    Absolutely fucking ridiculous.

    If you haven't got it in you to kill and butcher an animal you probably shouldn't eat meat. If you can't even touch raw meat with your hands without getting upset you should probably just give up now to be honest.

    At a time when retailers are being encouraged to stop wastefully using plastic packaging unnecessarily I find it quite staggering they'd do something like this.

    To be fair, millenialls didn’t create the current atmosphere of political correctness or health and safety gone mad - millennials at their oldest are early 30s.

    Their parents created it and brought their kids up in it.

    I'm a 33-year-old 'millennial' myself, but can't get my head around how many germophobes there are in my generation to make Sainsbury's consider something so utterly ridiculous. :lol:

    I'm not a fan of handling raw chicken but this is ridiculous.

    I’m a bit anal about touching chicken and that but I just wash my hands. I wouldn’t seek out touch free packaging.

    They don’t know they’re supposed to wash their hands after touching raw meat? Fucking hell.

    That's my first thought. Beyond that, if I buy chicken breasts, I usually cut them up to stir fry them, rarely if ever cook them whole. Difficult to do without touching the meat.

    "I've been preparing myself to forgive you. I think it's time to release you from the légumes, and transfer your talents to the meat.

    I can never touch raw meat until it's cooked. As a youth, I used to weep in butchers' shops."

    That's all it takes as well. Do what you want to with the chicken then wash your hands before touching anything much else.

    It is a joke that they're using plastic mind. Its almost like we're learning absolutely nothing.

    You are right. The molly coddling by parents over the last 30 or 40 years is utterly ridiculous. Turned people into utter wet wipes.

    Can people not just stick a bag over their hand to pick up the meat if they don't like it?

    Just lick your fingers after handling raw chicken to stop the spread to anything else.
