unusable sauce packet when buying sealed duck and turkey

I am always annoyed by those supposed "sauce packet" stucked in the cavity when you open a turkey or duck package. I actually tried to taste one of the sauce packet once -- it was totally terrible. Always gets thrown out. The packet weights at least one pound. I believe the manufacturers sneak those packets in just to make money -- in case of duck and turkey breast the weight of the packet is about 20% of the intended product! I first noticed this practice in frozen ducks. Now it is in frozen turkeys, as well as turkey breasts -- alway without any indication on the package. I feel it is like cheating.

Have you experienced that? Do you use the sauce packet? Can we actually do something about it?
