Alert: Trader Joe Kosher Turkey

Today I washed my Kosher turkey to air dry in fridge. Because of CH, I was warned there could be some feather thingies to pluck off -- got that taken care of.

I went inside turkey to pull "stuff" out and they only thing in there was a neck. I looked in every cavity, looking for the "innards" packet. (I always throw this out, do NOT like giblet gravy but I was worried that it had to be in there somewhere since it's always inside turkeys -- right? -- and I didn't want to roast it inside the turkey.

I decided to call TJ and the guy didn't know but said he'd find out and call me back. What he did was call the supplier and they told him their turkeys came only with the neck. Fine with me but I'm sure others will be surprised when they discover missing parts.
