Making Connection

If you have questions about buying fresh turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, or thawing a frozen bird, the federal government may be able to help.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a Meat and Poultry Hotline staffed by home economists, registered dietitians and food technologists who can talk turkey.

Common questions concern how to determine a turkey’s doneness (by using a cooking thermometer) or how to deal with leftovers (refrigerate immediately after dinner).

More information is available toll-free from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. PST at (800) 535-4555 or https://www.fsis.usda.gov on the Internet.
