Storing Leftovers Safely

Food Safety Tip of the Day

Remove the stuffing and carve the extra turkey meat from the bones.

Store leftover turkey in shallow containers and put in the refrigerator or freezer within two hours.

Use cooked leftover turkey and gravy within 3-4 days.

Cooked keeps in the freezer for 3-4 months. So if you have a lot of leftovers… put what you think you can use within 3-4 days in the refrigerator and freeze the rest.

Cooked turkey in the freezer will make a weeknight meal a snap on those days you need a break.

Use an appliance thermometer to ensure your refrigerator is at 40 degrees F or below.

Wash hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling food.

Make sure when using leftovers, reheat foods thoroughly to 165 degrees F. Use a food thermometer to check the temperature.

Sauces, gravies and soup should be brought to boiling when reheated.

When microwaving leftovers, make sure there are no cold spots in the food. Cover food, stir and rotate for even cooking.
