Today is Defrost Your Turkey Properly Day

The UK's Food Standards Agency is running a campaign to help ensure that every frozen turkey served throughout the homes of Britain are properly defrosted to ensure the minimum number possible of people suffering from food poisoning.

"Families across the nation are getting ready for Christmas and the majority of us will have turkey on the menu. Incorrect thawing provides a way for bacteria like campylobacter to spread, leaving you with a turkey dinner that looks and tastes delicious, but contains a hidden risk that can’t be seen, tasted or smelled.

"The Food Standards Agency is reminding you and other consumers that it’s the little things that you do that will keep you and your loved ones safe this Christmas. That's why this year we're saying: 'defrost your turkey correctly'."
