According to, once ground turkey is cooked, it should be kept for no more than three or four days in the refrigerator, if kept at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Frozen at zero degrees, it is safe to store and eat for two to six months.

Uncooked ground turkey stays fresh in the refrigerator for one to two days. In the freezer it remains good for three to four months.

In the freezer, raw ground turkey does not stay as fresh as other types of turkey. A whole turkey lasts up to a year when frozen, and pieces of turkey are fine for nine months.
