As part of its preparations for Thanksgiving, the USDA has sent out a “Holiday food safety kit” which includes a warning about the proper preparations required while assembling a “Turducken.” (A ‘Turducken’ is a layered roast chicken, stuffed into a duck, stuffed into a turkey)

The over 800 word document warns consumers about the dangers of bacteria – instructing them to keep the meat of the three birds at the proper temperature while assembling the elaborate stuffed poultry.
