Drexel University food microbiologist Dr. Jennifer Quinlan is available to offer safety tips on what to do with the turkey and other Thanksgiving dinner leftovers.

Quinlan can offer tips on: • How long it’s safe to keep food out of the refrigerator after Thanksgiving dinner. • How to store food in the refrigerator to keep cool air circulating. • The ideal refrigerator temperature for leftover food. • When to dispose of leftovers.

Quinlan’s current research focuses on the microbiological quality and safety of produce, dairy and meat products in markets in high socioeconomic areas as compared to the same food products in markets found in low socioeconomic areas. She also researches new and emerging technologies in food processing.
