Christmas Dinner is ruined after families discovered their turkeys had GONE OFF

Christmas dinners across the country have been ruined after families discovered their turkeys were 'rotting and smelling' when they went to cook them.

Turkeys sold by various supermarkets including Lidl, Tesco, and Sainsbury's were found to be yellow and stinking when they were opened to be cooked this morning.

Furious customers have taken to social media to post pictures of the rotten birds with some saying it meant no Christmas dinner for their family.

Shoppers from Lidl, Tesco, and Sainsbury's found meat was smelly and yellow

One Lidl customer named Jim posted pictures of their rotten £25 bird on Twitter on Christmas morning, claiming it had 'ruined' Christmas dinner.

They claimed to have bought the meat from the budget supermarket in Guisborough, North Yorkshire three days ago but found it was gone off and this morning - despite the sell-by-date being December 26.

'Cheers @LidlGB. Bought this Turkey crown from Guisborough store 3 days ago, straight in the fridge, sell by date boxing day,' he wrote.

'Absolutely stinks, rotten meat. £24.18 for a ruined Christmas Dinner.'

Other disgusted customers who bought their festive poultry in Tesco claimed that it was 'rotten and smelling' and 'yellow' when they went to put it in the oven this morning.

Another customer who bought their turkey in Tesco said they took it out of the fridge to find it had gone yellow and it 'stinks'. 

Sarah Waite took to Twitter to complain about her Sainsbury's-bought turkey which she found out was gone off this morning, writing it was 'absolutely disgusting'.

 A spokesperson for Sainsbury's said: 'The quality of our products is extremely important and we’re looking into a very small number of complaints.'

Tesco and Lidl have been contacted for comment.
