Butterball Reports Fresh Turkey Shortage

It may be a bit more difficult to find that large fresh turkey for your Thanksgiving table this year. Turkey producer Butterball has notified its retailers to expect around half of the fresh large–16 pounds or more–this Thanksgiving due to, according to The Exchange, an unexplained lack of weight gain. The news isn’t all bad however.

If consumers cannot find a Butterball fresh whole turkey in their desired size, they can purchase a Butterball frozen whole turkey for their Thanksgiving meal. Depending on the size of their turkey, it typically takes between three to five days to thaw; we suggest thawing in a refrigerator for four hours per every pound of turkey.

Since the number of fresh turkeys sold for Thanksgiving dinners is relatively small the shortage shouldn’t disrupt too many plans.
