The other day I was at the grocery store eyeing up turkeys, geese and ducks, trying to find something interesting to make for dinner. But as I was pawing through the cooler, I noticed that very few of the birds were actually frozen. Some of them seemed entirely thawed.
Is this normal? Every bird I've ever purchased has been frozen like a rock and required days of thawing. And a return visit to the store found the birds in the same condition, making me think that they'd been sitting there unfrozen for at least a couple of days. I should also add that the overall quality of the store has gone downhill as of late, so I do have some concerns about buying meat there, and if there's a potential of it ultimately getting me and the family sick.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
