I just read this . . . there's no "need to wash your turkey"

I found this a little surprising . . .

A little bit of Food Safety Advice for Thanksgiving | Marler Blog:

"Step away from the sink, and no one will get hurt:

You don’t need to wash your turkey before you roast it, and doing so can be dangerous. A British study found that washing poultry in the sink can spray bacteria up to 3 feet away. And with one in 50 turkeys estimated to be contaminated with salmonella, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s food-safety inspectors, you don’t want a mist of turkey juice on your relish platter."
