Anyone know how long after purchase a "fresh" not frozen turkey can be kept in the fridge before it spoils?

Typically they have an exp. date. Cryovac'd? At least a couple weeks, but check the date. And keep at 38° or below.

Ron -

There are three posible dates on the package but it's gotta be there somewhere if it's a packaged as opposed to a locally purchase or hunted turkey.

A "Sell by" date tells the store how long to display the product for sale. Consumers should buy the product before the date expires.

A "Best if Used By (or Before)" date is recommended for best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or food safety date.

A "Use-By" date is the last date recommended for the use of the product while at peak quality. The date has been determined by the manufacturer of the product.

well it's no use here but i thought it'd be funny & helpful- the butterball(not her-the company) q.a. lady was on the radio yesterday saying "once thawed it was still good for cooking & handling for 3-5 days".....now was that handling after cooking or before- go figger....if it don't smell funky or is slimy or green- cook it to 180 internal lol
