It’s almost time to throw out your Thanksgiving leftovers.
If you’re still eating leftover turkey sandwiches, you’re playing with fire. Turkey only stays good in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. After that, you run the risk of getting sick from a build-up of bacteria. So either eat it now, or freeze it.
Here are six Thanksgiving foods, and how long you can keep them in the fridge before they might make you sick . . .
- Turkey, 3 to 4 days.
- Homemade gravy. Only a day or two.
- Stuffing, 3 to 4 days.
- Mashed potatoes, 3 to 5 days.
- Pumpkin pie, 3 to 4 days. Apple pie lasts a little longer.
- Cranberry sauce, up to two weeks. MORE
