well, you know.

 

I saw on today's news that people were putting turkeys in the dishwasher to thaw out and then wash I guess.

Good grief.  Doesn't sound safe to eat.  I have heard of people putting fish in tin foil to steam.

Oh dear!  Sounds like they have no knowledge of food safety.  

Wonder how in the world they will try to cook it?

Tis true. I live right next to the Everglades. No way will I eat one of the pythons. Another pest here are the iguanas eaten in Central America and Mexico. They're everywhere. Not good eats for me either!!!

I googled the subject to see where people were getting the idea.  This is what I found!

 

Is it safe to thaw Turkey in refrigerator?
Refrigerator Thawing (Recommended) The USDA recommends thawing your turkey in the refrigerator. This is the safest method because the turkey will thaw at a consistent, safe temperature. This method takes some time, so allow one day for each 4 - 5 pounds of weight.
 
 
ALSO:
 
  1. No, you can't thaw a turkey in your dishwasher or the hot tub. I know you know thanksgiving is Thursday, but if you have a frozen turkey and it's 20 pounds, then you have to take it out of the freezer by Saturday to make sure it's thawed in time to cook.
