safe to eat?

Asked November 16, 2016, 1:03 PM EST

Hi-
I ordered a Stonewood Farms turkey for Thanksgiving. In light of the outbreak there of fowl cholera, can I be completely assured that a turkey from that farm, that has been delivered to my local market, is safe to serve my family, which includes a ten month old child and her nursing mother?
Thanks!
