“Americans will eat more than 46 million turkeys this Thanksgiving. Keep your family and friends safe with simple food safety tips from USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service:
Read labels carefully. Temperature labels show if the bird is fresh or frozen. If you plan to serve a fresh turkey, buy it no more than two days before Thanksgiving.
Do not wash the turkey. This spreads pathogens onto kitchen surfaces. The only way to kill bacteria that causes foodborne illness is to fully cook the turkey.
Refrigerate leftovers within two hours to prevent bacteria from growing on the food.”
