If you've still got five pounds of turkey in the fridge, get on that. It won't be good much longer.

Today is technically the last day to eat your Thanksgiving leftovers before they go bad. Some people might live dangerously and push it a few more days, but experts don't recommend it.

According to the USDA, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, yams, green beans, gravy, and pumpkin pie can all safely be stored in the fridge for three to four days. But after that, they might make you sick.

If you did Thanksgiving on Thursday, we're now on day four. So starting tomorrow, you're playing with fire.

If you don't want to waste food, most leftovers can last a few months in the freezer. So get them in there ASAP.

67% of Americans say Turkey is their favorite Thanksgiving leftover.
97% of Americans say their LEAST favorite leftovers are relatives who don't leave until Monday.
