Butterball isn't what it used to be
I bought a frozen Premium Butterball turkey, kept it frozen and thawed in the fridge as directed.When I took it out of the plastic bag I noticed the outside of each drumstick had dark colored patches, and the skin weird, as if it had been injected with something.
The turkey started browning early, so I turned down the oven and tented it with foil. I checked it an hour early and the dark meat had already fallen off the bones. It was dry, nasty smelling, and totally "unturkey" looking. Since I was hungry and love dark meat, I ate a little from the wing.
Mistake. I ended up with GI distress for days.
The dark part smelled strange, and even my dog wouldn't eat it.Obviously, Butterball is no longer the go-to brand for poultry.
