The picture of this is going to be way down on the page and if you don’t want to see anything really gross, or if you ever want to comfortably eat chicken again, you might not want to look at this.
I buy most all of my chickens from the Amish, already butchered and cleaned and bagged and ready for the freezer or ready to be canned. The meat tastes different from regular storebought chickens and even though the Amish chickens are more expensive, we get them the same day they’re butchered and . . well, that’s just how I choose to buy my chickens.
But, I’m not at home and my only choice to get a chicken I was going to fix for dinner today was to buy a chicken at the grocery store. The sell by date is December 12, 2010 and it’s a name brand . . a brand all the groceries stores carry. But inside, something just doesn’t look very appetizing! The chicken may be perfectly safe to eat but I doubt I’ll be able to think of anything other than this green organ. The chances that these particular organs came out of this particular chicken are probably slim but still . . it’s gross and this confirms that paying more for the chickens from the Amish and stocking up once a year when they have their chickens for sale is what I will continue to do in the future.
This company has employees that had to see this and surely I’m not the only one who thinks this should not have been in my chicken! I’ve written to the company and will let you know if I hear back from them.
