(WJW) — Thanksgiving 7 days is on us and it is time to dig out the old recipes the moment once again.
But right before you carry on old traditions, the Facilities for Disorder Management says you could possibly want to re-consider how you prep your turkey.
CDC states to NOT wash or rinse uncooked turkey because its juices can unfold in the kitchen and contaminate other foods, utensils, and countertops.
A 2020 study discovered that 78% of individuals described washing or rinsing turkey prior to cooking, CDC claims, but old recipes and spouse and children cooking traditions can make you and your relatives sick.
Here are a handful of other turkey-prepping reminders from the CDC:
- In no way thaw your turkey by leaving it out on the counter. Microorganisms can grow rapidly in the “danger zone” amongst 40°F and 140°F.
- When serving, use a foodstuff thermometer to make confident the turkey has reached a protected inside temperature of 165°F.
- Refrigerate leftovers at 40°F or colder as before long as attainable. Reheat all leftovers to at least 165°F right before serving.
The USDA claims that if you are serving a 20+ lb. turkey, it’ll need to have times to thaw. Put it in your refrigerator right now if you want it thawed out – the risk-free way – by Thursday.
