If your chicken smells like sulfur...

THROW IT AWAY!
DH cut open the wrapper on a brand new roasting hen and the smell was awful. At first I just thought it was DH
since I'd never been around chicken that smelled that way.
Anyway, I looked it up on the internet and a gas is released from chicken when it has become ridden with salmonella. You guessed it: that gas smells like sulfur. DH threw the hen away and cleaned everything really well before starting on plan b for supper but he must have missed something because he spent part of the evening pretty sick.
Hope somebody who didn't know about the smell reads this because my first inclination was to just rinse the bird really well and still cook it. I had no idea.
FYI, in case you read my blog on the soybeans, DH and I don't get food poisoning on a regular basis. Just got lucky this week.
