I'll be interested to see the other replies to this thread. I, too, bought a TJ fresh turkey over the weekend -- I needed a kosher turkey since my mom is coming for T'giving, and TJ's had the best prices anywhere for kosher turkey.
But -- I honestly wasn't comfortable with the idea of keeping it in the fridge for a week-and-a-half. So I put it in the freezer and I'll defrost it next week. Maybe that defeats the whole purpose of buying a fresh turkey, but I can't see that keeping it in the freezer for a week will hurt it that much. And it will certainly give me some peace of mind.
"We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake."
--President Barack Obama, 1/20/09
