How long can you keep a fresh turkey in the fridge?
In a freezer, a whole turkey can be stored up to one year to ensure the quality, while pieces can be frozen up to nine months. After cooking a turkey, it should be cut up and refrigerated within one hour of eating. Leftover turkey should be used within three days or it needs to be discarded.
