Just before Christmas my husband realized that the local natural food store had an organic turkey and so he had them hold it for us until today. We'd had turkey on Thanksgiving but at someone else's house so no leftovers. We were having other stuff for Christmas so we decided to cook the turkey on the 26th, today. He picked it up from the store, we rinsed it out, got it all in the oven and spent the day smelling the fabulous thing roasting. I made some stuffing and put it in the oven. When the turkey was done we moved it from the pan and put all the nice brown drippings in a pot to make gravy. Meantime, I was going to snitch my favorite part of the turkey, that crisp piece of skin at the neck. I poked around it and realized there was too much substance underneath, so I looked more closely and found the plastic bag of giblets in that cavity. We were sick...I looked on line and it said "If the plasic has not been altered in the cooking process" you can use the turkey, but otherwise harmful chemicals may have migrated into the turkey and it should be thrown out. Well, it looked pretty shriveled up to me, and if I have not seen the bag in its original form how would I know if it has been altered? Anyway, we tossed the turkey, figuring that a 30 dollar turkey was too high a price to pay for health problems down the line...but, boy, we were so disappointed. I was going to give some of it away to the kids and thank heavens we realized it was tainted before we did that! Whew. It's one thing to poison yourself, but someone else...yikes.
