Wednesday Weigh In - Holiday Food Safety
Had this occured in the depths of winter, that would have been one thing. But we'd had a week of unseasonably warm (50-60 degrees) weather when she posed the question. She insisted it was OK because the nights are so cold. Upon questioning her further, we learned that she parked in a heated garage.
It took all four of us to finally convince her to get rid of the turkey she had, and to go get a new (non-temperature-abused) bird. Of course, she wanted to thaw the new one on the kitchen counter...
She ultimately took our sage advice to heart and no one was sickened on Thanksgiving. Now that's something to be thankful for!
