I now seeing stuff from the fda. saying not To wash raw meats and chicken before cooking My main reason for washing is to get the blood off the raw food.the way I wash is to soak it. Now if some buy from like from a kosher butcher's shop .There be no need to wash Because the kosher butcher's shop all ready did And there will be no blood on all the meats.

Proper butchery practice - not just halal or kosher - makes sure that there is no blood left in the meat. If there were, meat would go off very quickly and that is why, when an animal is killed, the first thing to do is to hang it so that all the blood is drained out. There are pink juices in red meat (and very pale pink juices in white meat such as chicken and turkey). These are NOT blood but the natural juices of the meat - mostly protein. It is NOT necessary (and not a good idea) to wash meat because washing can actually introduce unwanted bacteria and will also remove some of the goodness and flavour of the meat.
