What happens if you eat under cooked chicken that has blood running from it? ?

I currently ate a few bites of chicken quarters that had been grilled but it wasn't done. The temperature read around  118 degrees Fahrenheit. Meaning blood was still running from it. I noticed and cooked the remainder in the oven until done.

    If you aren't sick now, you probably will be okay. Food poisoning from salmonella usually takes from 2-10 hours to show up. Invest in a meat thermometer.

    That just means you're gross.

  • There is so much wrong with your question... 118 degree chicken would not be under cooked, it would be totally raw and just warmer than room temperature. And chicken (the butchered animal, not the live animal) does not have blood. There are occasionally arteries in the thighs that even when cooked to 165 will remain red. The pink/red juices you see are water and myoglobin. 

    So - the juice is no problem, but 118 degree chicken is equal to raw chicken, so you don't want to eat that. 

    Just curious, at what point did you check the temperature?

    If it was contaminated you obviously can get food poisoning from it, but chances are youi will be fine. If you do find that you are getting sick then immediately go you your opd and have them check you over.

    If the suspect piece contained salmonella, you’d be infected, as it’s destroyed by cooking chicken thoroughly (juice runs clear, no blood). If it hadn’t contained the infectious germ, you’re fine, it’s just not appetizing.

    Blood running from a chicken means it wasn't slaughtered properly. You Do run the risk of food poisoning-Trust me, you Never want to go through that. If you didn't get sick, next time make sure chicken is cooked to 165 degrees.

    Even if the chicken was raw there shouldn't have been “blood running from it”!

    If the chicken wasn't cooked properly and was contaminated with bacteria that could cause food poisoning, and you ate it, then you might well get food poisoning. If it wasn't, then you won't.

    It’s too  late now but in the future just don't eat chicken that's not cooked.

    Experts say that a lot depends on how MUCH exposure you have to the various bacteria/viruses. Eating a few bites is unlikely to make you sick. It depends partly on where the chicken comes from. There's more disease in the ones that are raised in industrial conditions.
