|Everyone knows about the Butterball Hotline—the number you call on Thanksgiving when you have a question about—or a problem with—your turkey and stuffing. Many of us have used it—even a fictional president of the United States.
The Butterball Hotline was featured in a memorable episode of “The West Wing,” when president Jed Bartlet called it (1.800.Butterball) on Thanksgiving with a question about stuffing and cooking the turkey. See the video and you’ll pick up a few tips.
Perhaps President Bartlet didn’t know that the USDA has its own Meat & Poultry Hotline. You can phone 1.888.674.6854, weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time (in English or Spanish), and on Thanksgiving Day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
However, you’ve got a week before a problem or crisis potentially arrives. Do some advance study at Butterball.com and nip it in the drumstick.
