Don't Wash Your Thanksgiving Turkey

Several health agencies arehanding out the same advice before Thanksgiving: Don’t wash theturkey before cooking it.

One nutritionist said: “You can’t wash off bacteria with water, andrinsing out the turkey risks splashing its juices all over the sink.”
Experts recommend opening the plastic wrap and draining any liquid into thesink before throwing the packaging out. They then suggest patting the turkeydry with paper towels, and washing your hands and utensils thoroughly withhot water and soap.
According to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, washing rawpoultry before cooking is not recommended because bacteria in theraw meat and juices can be spread to other foods, utensils and surfaces.
A recent study conducted by the USDA found that 60 percent of sinks werecontaminated after handling raw turkey in the sink, meaning that if you chooseto prepare it in the sink, it is necessary to fully clean and sanitize the areabefore proceeding with other food prep work.
