Check and adhere to use-by dates onfresh poultry packages. “Fresh turkeys are highlyperishable,” she said. “If you buy it too far in advance or don’tuse it by the date specified, it may start to spoil in yourrefrigerator before you’re ready to cook it.”Don’t stuff a turkey until you’reready to cook it. Stuffing it a day early can be a costlyshortcut. “If you stuff your turkey,” Harrison said, “do it rightbefore cooking and stuff it loosely.”Thaw it in the fridge. Don’tthaw a frozen turkey at room temperature. Thaw it in therefrigerator, where it will stay cooler than 40 degrees, or incold water, changing the water every 20 to 30 minutes.Serve no turkey before itstime. The safe way to tell when poultry is cookedthoroughly is to use a food thermometer.”Insert a food thermometer into the thickest part of the thighmuscle without touching the bone,” Harrison said. “When itregisters 180 degrees Fahrenheit, the bird is done. If you’recooking only white meat pieces, they’re done at 170 degrees.”Stuffing should reach at least 165 degrees, Harrison said. Youcan check it by inserting the food thermometer into the thickestpart of the stuffing.Get the stuffing out. As soonas the turkey’s done, remove all of the stuffing. Harmfulbacteria are more likely to grow in the stuffing if it stays inthe bird after cooking.If you don’t need all the stuffing for the first serving, keepthe rest either in the refrigerator or above 140 degrees in theoven, if you will be serving it soon.Don’t leave the turkey out after themeal. From the time the turkey comes out of the oven, youhave about 2 hours to carve it, serve it and then refrigerate orfreeze the leftovers.When refrigerating meat or stuffing, store it in shallow coveredcontainers so it will cool quicker. It’s best to slice theleftover meat or turkey so it cools fast.”Leftover turkey will keep in the refrigerator for three or fourdays,” Harrison said. “Use the stuffing and gravy within one ortwo days. Bring leftover gravy to a rolling boil before you serveit, and reheat stuffing to 165 degrees.”For longer storage, she said, package leftovers in freezercontainers, freezer paper or heavy-duty aluminum foil and freezethem. Use frozen turkey, stuffing and gravy within one month. (Dan Rahn is a news editor with the University of GeorgiaCollege of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.) By Dan RahnUniversity of GeorgiaWhile you’re feasting your eyes on your holiday turkey andpondering biting into it, it’s already “thinking” about bitingyou back. If you’re not careful, it will.Think of the time after the turkey is cooked as a race thatstarts when you take it out of the oven, said Judy Harrison, anExtension Service foods specialist with the University of GeorgiaCollege of Family and Consumer Sciences.Not putting leftovers into the refrigerator fast enough is justone of the costly mistakes people make in buying, cooking,serving and storing turkeys. “Between the store and theleftovers,” she said, “a number of mistakes can make foodborneillness possible.”Behind the biteBehind virtually all of the things people do wrong with turkeys,Harrison said, is the fact that the bacteria with the bite, theones that cause foodborne illnesses, multiply fast between 40 and140 degrees Fahrenheit.These tips can help you avoid being bitten by a foodborne illness:

Last week, Moab, Utah’s medical director asked Gov. Gary Herbert to close all non-essential businesses in Moab, a small town that serves as basecamp for many of Utah’s national parks, including Arches and Canyonlands. Dr. Dylan Cole warned that Moab’s 17-bed hospital can only care for five people with critical coronavirus symptoms. “My strong concern is that we are greatly increasing the risk of a significant uptick in this viral illness,” Dr. Cole told Utah’s NPR station. “We are putting all of our health at risk.” As Covid-19 spreads, national parks are open– but you should stay home “It is irresponsible to urge people to visit national park sites when gathering at other public spaces is no longer considered safe,” Phil Francis, chair of the Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks told National Geographic. “We are concerned that the Secretary’s decision to waive entrance fees will lead to overcrowding and a greater risk to the health and well-being of our NPS employees and visitors. Francis appears to be on to something. On Saturday, Shenandoah National Park shared a photo of a crowded parking lot on their Instagram page. “The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners at Shenandoah is our number one priority,” the caption said. “The CDC guidance for this pandemic includes social distancing. We are concerned that Saturday’s visitation patters were in violation of CDC recommendations. On Sunday, Madison County authorities closed access roads to Old Rag and the Whiteoak Boundary Trail because the overcrowding continued. It’s not just the danger of spreading the virus between national park visitors that has many on edge, but the fact that many national parks are located in rural parts of the county where a viral outbreak would put an overwhelming strain on the small hospitals that serve them. Last week, Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt directed the National Park Service to waive all entrance fees to the national parks that remain open during the Covid-19 pandemic. “This small step makes it a little easier for the American public to enjoy the outdoors in our incredible National Parks,” Bernhardt said in a news release. But though the parks may be open, many are urging would-be parkgoers to stay at home.
Mar 10, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Animal health officials in India reported that H5N1 avian influenza has resurfaced in West Bengal state, as officials in Vietnam said the virus has struck poultry in another province as well as a farm near Hanoi.Anisur Rahaman, the state’s animal resources development minister, said nearly 1,000 birds have died of the H5N1 virus over the past 10 days in two villages near India’s border with Bangladesh, the Associated Press (AP) reported today. Veterinary workers started culling birds in the area after the H5N1 outbreak was confirmed, the report said.One of the affected districts is Murshidabad, an area that had reported earlier outbreaks, Reuters reported today. Bird deaths were also reported in Birbhum district, where the original outbreak started, the report said.The new outbreaks were reported less than 2 weeks after the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) praised India for its success in fighting its worst avian influenza outbreak. The initial round of outbreaks began in mid January in the village of Margram. The virus spread quickly, striking poultry in 13 of the state’s 19 districts and prompting the culling of almost 4 million birds.FAO officials had also said that the country was at high risk for more outbreaks and urged India to remain vigilant.Rahaman told the AP the new outbreaks could have resulted from villagers hiding their poultry during earlier culling operations, or the virus could have been transmitted through the smuggling of birds from Bangladesh, a country that is experiencing widespread H5N1 outbreaks.Elsewhere, animal health officials in Vietnam said the H5N1 virus struck birds in Quang Tri province in the central part of the country, a local newspaper, Pioneer, reported today, according to Xinhua, China’s state news agency. The outbreak killed 90 of 600 unvaccinated ducks at a household, and the remaining birds were culled, the report said.Vietnam’s agriculture ministry said the new outbreaks push the number of provinces reporting recent outbreaks to nine, Xinhua reported. Most are in the northern part of the country.On Mar 7, veterinary officials reported an H5N1 outbreak at a farm on the outskirts of Hanoi, the nation’s capital, Agence France-Presse reported that same day. The virus hit about 2,000 unvaccinated chicken, ducks, and geese, the report said. The remaining birds were culled, and birds in nearby communes were vaccinated.In other developments, agriculture officials in China today said it has received reports of 12 H5N1 outbreaks this year, Xinhua reported.Li Jinxiang, director of the ministry’s veterinary department, told Xinhua that three of the outbreaks have been confirmed, two in Tibet and one in Guizhou province, all in the southwestern part of the country.He said unusually cold and snowy conditions contributed to the outbreaks by creating a favorable environment for the virus, hampering regularly scheduled bird vaccination drives, and harming living conditions for livestock.Jinxiang said government departments across China are launching spring disease control and immunization efforts and that the ministry has gathered 5 billion milliliters of vaccines for immunization activities.

The Somerton Park unit complex at RedlynchSTYLISH modern units are popular among buyers at city-fringe Cairns suburbs, but some of the older stock is proving more difficult to sell.According to CoreLogic, the suburbs to experience the highest growth in median unit prices for the 12 months to last December were: Bungalow (35.5 per cent), Earlville (22.4 per cent), Kamerunga (21.6 per cent) and Redlynch (15.7 per cent).But Redlynch Real Estate principal David Jeffries said the median price growth had been driven by the sale of modern, more up-market units.“A lot of the older stock is sitting there and doing nothing,” he said. “There are certain complexes at Redlynch, such as Eden Park and Somerton Park, which have had a few sales in the $250,000-$280,000 range. But some of the other complexes are underperforming. “Many people don’t realise that it only takes a few sales at the higher end to change median prices.”Edge Hill experienced a 13.6 per cent rise in median unit prices, taking the suburb’s average to $230,000.Andrew Thornton of Elite Real Estate Services said Edge Hill, Kamerunga and Redlynch were “all about lifestyle”.“If I’ve sold units in those suburbs it’s most likely because people are downsizing, but they know the areas still have a lot to offer them,” he said. More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoMr Thornton said the growth in Bungalow’s median unit prices would have been driven by investors.“They knew these properties were cheap to buy but offered great rental returns,” he said. “Bungalow is a hidden gem – it’s close to the city and the prices are lower than what you’ll find in Parramatta Park.“I recently sold a three-bedroom unit at Earlville for $275,000 but I think if the same property was in Cairns North you’d be looking at $330,000.” For the past two months Redlynch woman Carmen Ward has enjoyed living in her Margaret St unit.“I was previously in a house at Redlynch, I then moved to the Northern Beaches but have been trying hard to get back to the area,” she said. Ms Ward said she chose to live in a unit for the affordability and reduced maintenance. “I am a sole parent, working and studying, so I don’t have time to maintain a yard,” she said. “My son attends a local school, to which we live close enough for him to ride. And we also love the scenery of Redlynch.”
