On her extension report today, Pondera County Agent Wendy Wedum mentioned a brochure titled "Let's Talk Turkey", published by the USDA. The 2-page flyer is packed with information on safely thawing and cooking your holiday turkey, as well as storing and reheating the leftovers. The bochure is available free from your county sxtenion office, or click HERE to download a pdf copy. Should you need to speak with an expert, the USDA's Meat and Poultry Hotline is 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854), available 8am-2pm (Mountain Time) Monday-Friday. 

Another useful resource Wendy mentioned is a food safety fact sheet published by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service. Click HERE for a full list of downloadable infomation sheets from the FSIS.
