If you haven't finished or froze your leftovers from Thanksgiving, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it’s time to throw them out. 

The CDC says Monday was the last safe day to store your leftover turkey potatoes and stuffing in the fridge, lasting only three to four days in the fridge. 

Pies as well as canned corn and green beans only last three to four days as well.

But there’s good news if you like cranberry sauce. You can keep those leftovers in your fridge for one to two weeks.

According to thefood safety storage chart, if you freeze your leftover turkey it will stay good for two to six months in the freezer.
