Are the fresh turkeys sold at Sprouts ever frozen?
No. Sprouts turkeys are fresh, never frozen. This means that they’ve been kept at the right temperature for optimum freshness and safety. Unlike frozen solid turkeys, which are typically brought down to 30° below zero, the fresh turkeys at Sprouts have been shipped to us and stored at temperatures between 26°F and 28°F (as required by law). The below-freezing temperature causes some ice to appear in the cavity and possibly around the joints. This ice is frozen water, not frozen meat.
