Hopefully you put your Thanksgiving leftovers in the fridge a couple hours after eating them, but how long will they last? 

According to researchers, turkey is only good through Saturday or Sunday – that dish will see the first spike in bacteria levels.

By Sunday or Monday, you'll want to toss items like mashed potatoes and dressing.

Fruits and veggies are safe to eat up to 12 days later, according to that research.
