How long can you leave a raw turkey out of the refrigerator?
You shouldn't really as food is in the danger zone where bacteria can reproduce at a much faster rate. This means its more likely you'll get food poisoning.

Pork, unless bacon, should be used within 72 hours of purchase or it should be frozen.
The magic number is 7 days
1 day to 2 days. 3 to 5 days or a week depending on the kind of turkey.
I bought butterball turkey today Nov 19th and it was completely thawed. Can I refreeze it? Or can I keep it in the refrigerator until Thursday, which is 5 days from now. I don…`t know how long it was thawed before I bought it.
As long as they haven't been washed or sliced, you could leave strawberries out until they start to rot and mold. But for nutritional value and eating quality, they should be …refrigerated.
This food will keep for about 5 days in the refrigerator. Place the food in an air tight container for the best results. This food can easily be transferred to the freezer for… longer storage time.
People constantly ask for some type of verification that the food they eat will not make them ill. That is nearly impossible to do without bacteriological and chemical tests, …so all we can do is provide guidelines, like: . Handle food in a sanitary manner (wash hands, clean & sanitize food-contact surfaces, protect from cross-contamination, package & store properly) . Keep potentially hazardous food either hot or cold and cook and reheat thoroughly, and . Use it within a reasonable time. . In the end, you are responsible for what you feed yourself and your family. This adage has truth to it: When in doubt, throw it out. There is no way that someone else can determine when your raw turkey stored in your refrigerator will become unsafe to eat. Raw poultry should be cooked within a couple days of purchase.
There are many schools of thought on the refrigeration life span of poultry. Some think that a fresh bird can be kept refrigerated in the home for a week, while others think …that with a solution of salt water brine, the turkey or chicken can be kept for a bit longer. The majority tend to lean towards the bird being kept refrigerated for a week or less.
The concern isn't microbiological, but chemical. It will turn rancid faster at room temperature. If it still smells and tastes OK, put it back in the fridge or freezer.
As long as the meat is kept refrigerated, protected from contamination or from contaminating other food, and it is used within a day or two, it should be OK to do.

Yes!!! In a matter of hours, any poultry left out of the fridge can be spoiled enough to cause you to be quite sick.
