State Farm® urges consumers to be cautious when frying a turkey

State Farm®Bloomington, IL – On Thanksgiving there are more cooking fires than any other day of the year. Grease and cooking-related claims more than double on Thanksgiving Day compared to an average day in November according to State Farm.

With the popularity of turkey frying increasing, U.S. fire departments are responding to more than 1,000 fires each year in which a deep fryer is involved. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) says deep fryer fires cause an average of 5 deaths, 60 injuries, and more than $15 million in property damage each year.

Oil splatters out of a fryer, causing a burst of smoke and flames that can easily burn a house, or even worse, an adult or child.
