Chitlins/chitterlings brands

I think I bought the wrong brand of chitlins to try out, as a novice. IBP brand. Nowhere on the label does it say they're pre-washed and ready to cook. They are USDA approved, and mass marketed to supermarkets, so I should think they're perfectly safe, right? But then why don't they brag about being pre-washed, like Aunt Bessie's brand does? Should I trust them, or should I buy Aunt Bessie's to start out with?

Get prewashed! I had a roommate once make these in my apartment and it was the most disgusting smell to come home to that I've ever smelled in my life to that time or since. And I've had some pretty "smelly" jobs in my life working with animals and dead people.

IBP's are a good brand..The package doesn't say pre cleaned bcuz they are not. The pre cleaned ones are not as good bcuz they pull mostly all the fat off which gives the chitterlings there flavor, and u still have to clean them. IBP takes more time to clean. i have spend hours cleaning a 10lb bucket of IBP's. I was told that if u boil the IBP's for 5mins, they are easier to clean and it kills the bacteria. Overall they are safe, u have nothing to worry about.
