The series that loves to terrify us with everyday foods this week explores the lethal possibilities of chicken. In Gravesend, an inspector visits a Chinese takeaway and finds a box that once contained frozen food is used to store cooked chicken. She’s not happy. Back at the food lab, presenter Chris Hollins meets a woman who believes ordering chicken and noodles left her hospitalised with kidney failure.

Meanwhile, the man from Reigate council is shocked to see chicken wings left under a pizza oven to defrost. Among these fowl deeds, Chris gets what should be any presenter’s dream assignment – a trip round a pie factory.
