Forgot to rinse the turkey! Am I okay?

  • 3

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?

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

    1. relax. you'll have NO problem.

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