Thanksgiving turkey
With Thanksgiving a little more than a week away it’s a very busy time at the Ag Department’s Meat and Poultry Hotline. Cathy Isom has Tina Haynes, a food safety expert & Registered Dietitian, who says calls have been coming in non-stop from those asking questions for Holiday Meal Help. USDA has a Consumer Guide to Safely Roasting a Turkey that gives you all of the thawing, preparation and cooking tips for a turkey.
