Very bad Thanksgiving

Girls, it will be the worst Thanksgiving in my family...
I bought a turkey yesterday in Walmart and it was definitely fresh. It looked and smelled good. But after dinner my whole family except me (because i'm a vegetarian,) were poisoned. My son Robert got in the hospital and he's still there! I don't know what to do!

Alice, I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm sure he will be all right. What does the doctor say?

Are you sure it was the turkey? Usually food poisoning takes at least a few hours to cause symptoms. But if it was, you should contact the FDA and your local health department so they can investigate what happened and hopefully prevent others from becoming sick from the same source: http://www.foodsafety.gov/report/problem/index.html

If it is confirmed food poisoning, expect health officials visitors. I hate to say this but make a list of everything everyone ate in the last 24 hours.
Hope your family feels better soon.

Did your family all fly or drive in on the same transportation, and maybe eat the same food somewhere else? My understanding of food poisoning is that it usually takes a day or two to kick in.

Never less than 8 hours. Usually 24 hours.
Now an allergen will show up almost immediately.
