turkey drama

My mother-in-law is going to make thanksgiving dinner at our house this year. Last Thursday she bought a frozen turkey and put it in our fridge so it could start to thaw. We're planning to cook it this Thursday. I mentioned it to my mom (who will not be there) and she freaked out, said a week in the fridge was way too long for a turkey.

The usda says our 12-pound turkey needs about 3 days to thaw, then can remain in the fridge for 1-2 days before we cook it. So yeah 7 days total is kinda stretching it.

but my husband and inlaws are acting insulted that I'd even question this, like, "we've been doing this for years we always thaw the turkey for a week what do you think we're going to do POISON EVERYONE?"

should I just shut my mouth, eat turkey, lie to my mother and say we threw it out because she's all convinced that it's a biohazard?
