About the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line

One of the first national, toll-free consumer help lines, the original Turkey Talk-Line staff of six home economists fielded questions from 11,000 turkey-troubled Americans during its first season in November 1981. On Thanksgiving Day, the small group took hundreds of calls ? with only a rolodex of notes and their own knowledge to help them answer the nation's questions. Today, professionally-trained home economists, registered dieticians and nutritionists assist more than 100,000 callers each year in the United States and Canada during the holiday season. With 50+ staff members, the Turkey Talk-Line has the resources to answer questions from either English- or Spanish-speaking callers, as well as respond to questions via e-mail.
