Why does my chicken smell funny?

This is totally normal!

Depending on your box type, you may receive two types of Chicken Packaging:

Cryovac: 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 up the package and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes before cooking or give it a quick rinse under cold water.

Tray: Unlike other chicken packaging, our trayed chicken does not contain any chemicals to prolong its shelf life. When you open the packaging, you may experience a confinement smell upon opening. All you need to do is open up the package and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes before cooking or give it a quick rinse under cold water.

That being said, should you have any concerns about the quality of your chicken, please get in touch with us.
