Lesson 3c - Thanksgiving Dinner - Thawing

 Cartoon 3

The turkey has been left to thaw uncovered at room temperature. Art knows that food should be thawed in the refrigerator, just before cooking, in a microwave, or in cold running water below 70°F. If the water is too warm, it will cause the exterior to enter the TDZ while the interior portion is still frozen.

What will Art do?   What should be done?  Where are superheroes when you need them?

Cartoon 4

Cooker and Faren Heit arrive just in time. They educate people about the TDZ while fighting the evil Contaminator.

They hear the desperate restaurant owner's plea for help--his turkey is near the TDZ! Will they make it in time?
