$4.69/lb?

After reading the various postings about chili I decided I really needed to make some. I was going to make a mix of ground beef and ground turkey - but the package of ground turkey was $4.69 per pound, compared to the 80% lean ground beef at $2.99 (with my store card). Yes, I'm sure if i went to the big box store and spent an hour and a half to get there, shop just for that one thing (didn't need to spend the money on everything else I would have come home with), and about $3 in gasoline I probably could have saved a buck or two.

Isn't 4.69/lb a bit much for a package of previously frozen foster farms ground turkey (they only had 1.25 lb size packages).
