chlorinated chicken

so i fried chicken tonight..and it was good BUT i tasted this weird taste and i couldn't figure out what it was other than that it tasted like chlorine...i didn't think it was my cooking so i looked it up online. apparently our chicken nowadays is bathed in a chlorine solution after being slaughtered. so thats why it tasted weird...now im worrying that my baby is okay...anyone else know anything about this or if its dangerous? the chicken was fully cooked so i don't know why it tasted like that other than that i haven't had at home fried chicken in a long long time. im definitely gonna be buying organic chicken from now on.

Wow I know I read in what to expect that poultry is one of the biggest complaints with pregnant women. I can't even eat it at all. I don't think that the food will hurt your baby but if you are still unsure than I would definitely talk to your doc.
