There’s the norovirus that can produce "acute-onset vomiting, watery non-bloody diarrhea with abdominal cramps, and nausea" according to the Center for Disease Control.
And that’s not all. Bacteria such as "Salmonella Typhimurium" and "Clostridium Perfringen" can also lurk in Thanksgiving turkeys and cause some people to become seriously ill and downright miserable.
