Turkey time is upon us! Each year, many foodborne outbreaks are linked to large family gatherings. Food handling errors and inadequate cooking are the most common problems that lead to poultry-associated foodborne disease outbreaks in the United States. This upcoming holiday season, please take appropriate steps to thaw, handle and cook turkey properly. It is important to always practice good hand-washing, avoid cross-contaminating other foods and surfaces with raw meat, and cook turkey to a safe internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
