"Is your Thanksgiving turkey crawling with germs?" asks WebMD. "Nobody knows" is the disturbing answer given. Last year, the USDA put out a list of 38 turkey plants they'd tested. In the worst plants, one-fourth to one-half of all turkeys carried Salmonella, a dangerous food-poisoning germ. Salmonella poisoning makes 1.3 million Americans sick, leading to 15,000 trips to the hospital -- and more than 500 deaths -- every year. "The list ruffled feathers by naming the good and bad turkeys by brand name," notes WebMD, which is apparently why this year, there's no list available! So... good luck!
