Forgot to rinse the turkey! Am I okay?

Humbucker Nov 22, 2006 04:12 AM

I just realized that I forgot to rinse the turkey before I placed it in the brine a couple of hours ago. Am I okay or should I take it out, rinse it, and brine it again?

    It's in water right now, right? Well then, consider it rinsed. :-D

        I'm sure the brining and roasting will kill whatever bacteria might be on it if any.
