Thawed raw turkey--1-2 days.

Cooked turkey--3-4 days in the refrigerator. In the freezer, up to 3 months

Foods that are left out in room temperature for more than an hour can begin bacteria growth. Our stomach acids can kill some of these bacterias but not all and some can make you very sick. Keep foods OUT of the danger zone- Above 45 degrees and Below 145 degrees. Between these temperatures bacteria lives and breeds on our foods.
