Food safety is our top priority for Plainville Farms.
When handled and cooked properly to 165°F, you can continue to have full confidence in the turkey and other poultry products you consume.
Proper handling and preparation techniques for raw foods are so important for consumers to know, understand and follow.
Please follow these safe handling and cooking instructions when serving turkey.
As with all fresh products, you should wash your hands and cooking utensils thoroughly, avoid cross contamination with other foods, cook food to a proper internal temperature, and refrigerate promptly to prevent food safety problems.
Cooking turkey to an internal temperature of 165° F, as measured by a food thermometer, is recommended by the USDA.
Consumers who choose to feed a raw meat diet to their pets should take care to prevent cross-contamination and exposure to household members.
The only way to ensure that all fresh meat and poultry is safe to consume is through proper cooking. Turkey and chicken should never be eaten raw or even "rare." Cooking turkey to an internal temperature of 165° F, as measured by a food thermometer, is recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and our own safety specialists. This enables you to enjoy our great-tasting products with confidence. Click here to read more.
