Health Tip: Cooking Your Thanksgiving Turkey Safely

Health Tip: Cooking Your Thanksgiving Turkey Safely

11/22/13

(HealthDay News) -- Eating a bad Thanksgiving bird can ruin your holiday in a hurry.

The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service suggests how to ensure that your turkey is properly cooked and prepared:

  • Take in account factors that influence how long your turkey will take to cook, from its size to its storage temperature.
  • Completely thaw the turkey before cooking.
  • Roast it at 325 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
  • Use a roasting pan of 2 inches to 2.5 inches deep.
  • If you stuff the turkey, make sure stuffing is loosely packed inside.
  • Check the temperature of both the stuffing and the turkey with a food thermometer; temperature should be at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Make sure the turkey cooks long enough, and allow 20 minutes before carving.
