Horrific demon turkey head found in Tesco bird ruins family’s Christmas

A woman says her Christmas is ruined before it's even begun after finding a demon turkey head inside her Tesco turkey.

Christmas Eve is normally the day many people open their birds to prepare for the Christmas feast.

And it can be the day many unwanted surprises are found – and today (December 24) is no different, as one Tesco shopper found out.

Twitter user Steph Gadd, posting under the username Gadd123, uploaded a rather horrifying image of a feather-less turkey head which she claims was found “hidden” inside her mum's bird.

She wrote: “@Tesco my mum was surprised to find an actual turkey head inside the turkey she purchased from one of your stores!”

The horror turkey head has been skinned and comes complete with full beak – and giblets.

Tesco has yet to comment on it, but the Daily Star has reached out to them and the woman for a comment.

However, that didn't stop many people flocking to the social media side to react to it.

The British Turkey Council tweeted: “Greetings from the British Turkey Council. This isn’t the standard we would expect – thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.”

Another user called it “extra flavour”, while a third wrote: “That's your gravy sorted then”.

Fellow Tesco shopper Gemma, posting on Twitter under @Scottishgem1983, slammed the supermarket for their basted turkey joint with black pepper packaging failure.

Images show how a layer of what looks like silver baking foil has been put into the packaging the wrong way round, leaving a vile-looking layer of foil stuck to the turkey joint.

An angry Gemma posted: “My pets will be tearing into what's left of this once I've scraped all the foil off!!

“What a complete disaster of a turkey and our main course tomorrow!!

“Cooked as per instructions but I can only assume you have put the 'ovenable layer' is the wrong way round??"

Tesco and the customer have both been approached for a comment about this issue, too.

It appears that the issue is a common one, as a Twitter user called Nichola Johnston posted images on earlier this week (December 22) of her pork, sage and onion stuffed turkey joint looking similarly grim.

She wrote: “I purchased your own brand pork, sage & onion stuffed turkey joint.

“I followed the instructions exactly. The foil pad disintegrated and covered the meat and juice in foil bits. I hope no one has this for their Xmas lunch.”

Tesco responded to her post with an apology, and an offer of further investigation, while Sainsbury's oddly responded asking if she would like their “Christmas Fairy” to “try and help”.
