Featured Question

My son butchered a turkey at a friends house on Saturday. Several turkeys were being butchered. My daughter-in-law went and brought some of her concerns to me this afternoon. I have no knowledge about how to safely butcher a turkey, so maybe how it was done is safe; but I have concerns as well. The turkeys were all butchered on the same table, with the same knife, no cleaning in between. After the feathers and giblets were removed, all the turkeys were placed in a kiddy pool of water. The water was bloody and had turkey feathers and other stuff in it. My son then put the turkey in a plastic bag and brought it home and hosed it out again. Should I be worried about contamination? Please help!
