My Chicken has an odour to it - is this normal?

Chicken having an unusual smell can seem concerning, however it may well be due to the packaging method rather than the chicken itself.

Our chicken is vacuum packaged. This means your chicken is vacuum sealed for freshness purposes. During this process, some oxygen is removed from the packaging to preserve the quality. This can cause a sulphur or "eggy" smell when opened. All you need to do is open the package and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes before cooking.

That being said, should you have any concerns about the safety of your chicken do not eat it and please get in touch with us - either via email info@butcherbox.ca or phone (905) 593-2648
