Medical Mythbuster: Can Eating Stuffing from a Turkey Cause Salmonella Poisoning?

The truth is, any food (including stuffing) made from poultry and eggs can be a cause of salmonella poisoning. That’s why it’s so important to prepare and cook your food properly. The high temperatures used in cooking a turkey will kill the salmonella bacteria. So be sure to follow good cooking practices and enjoy that turkey dinner.
