How long does already defrosted turkey keep?

ChineseChou | Nov 15, 2009 09:40 PM

So, I had a brain fart and bought a frozen turkey 2 weeks ago, thinking htat Thanksgiving was just around the corner. Well, it wasn't and now the turkey has defrosted. I put it in the coldest part of my fridge. Can I still roast it and eat it even though it will have been defrosted for over 20 days? Aside from health and safety issues, will it be any good? Or should I just go buy another turkey and cook this one already?
