Study Finds Gweneth Paltrow's Recipes Could Actually Give You Food Poisoning

Gweneth Paltrow has a bit of a reputation for doing some strange things in the name of beauty, but now researchers have found that her recipes might actually give people food poisoning.

In her newest cookbook, My Father's Daughter, there is one very important piece left out of the recipes that puts people at risk of salmonella and campylobacter.

The experts say that the chicken recipes should have a temperature listed that says when it's cooked. While she lists the oven temperature and the time it takes to cook, leaving out the final temperature that the meat should reach means that people might eat it before it is cooked.

Everyone's oven works differently so it is important to check that chicken is cooked thoroughly. Her cookbook isn't the only one that is missing this important detail, apparently only 9% of cookbooks are actually doing it right!

Spokesman for Paltrow acknowledged that the end point temperatures were missing, but said that there was enough cooking time to make up for that.

In case you are wondering, chicken is done when it reached 74 degrees Celcius or 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do you think it's fair that researchers are singling her out when most cookbooks are missing it?
