Another would you eat this - turkey

Recommended Posts

On Friday my mother bought the thanksgiving turkey for the family. Her intent was to bring it right away to my house since we host the holiday. She put the frozen turkey in an insulated bag and threw it into the trunk of her car. She then forgot to bring it and it sat in her trunk for two days (in a large garage with temps in the 30s). She called me this morning to ask me to come get it.


The turkey is thawed, yet cool to the touch. There are bloody turkey juices in the bottom of the insulated bag. Will it make it safely until Thursday if I put it in the fridge/freezer? Could I cook it today and freeze the cooked meat or should I just throw it out? I'm willing to chuck it and buy a new turkey, although I would never tell my mother that.
