If you still have Thanksgiving leftovers, it's time to finish them off or throw them out.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reports the following:
- Cooked turkey should be eaten within three to four days.
- Stuffing and gravy will last up to two days.
- Casseroles and cooked vegetables will be good up to three or four days.
- Fruit and cream pies should be eaten within two to three days.
- Frozen leftovers last longer. For example, meat lasts up to three months in a freezer.
The academy also notes leftovers should be reheated to at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit and stored in shallow containers, about 2 inches deep, so the food cools evenly and quickly in the fridge.
If you are unsure about the quality of some food, officials say, "when in doubt, throw it out."
