The turkeys were described as “rancid,” “green,” “slimy,” and “rotten.”

A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s, one of the grocery stores criticized, said they were looking into “a handful of cases,” The Sun reports.

“We are looking into a handful of cases where customers have reported their turkey does not meet our high quality standards,” they said.

While Aldi, another store criticized, apologized for not meeting their “usual high standards,” the outlet reports.

“If customers are not completely satisfied with their purchase, they can return items to their local store with proof of purchase for a full refund.”

A third store, Tesco, responded to customers on Twitter apologizing and asking for further details.
