Problem with ground turkey

Bkeats | Dec 17, 201304:08 PM

Has anyone seen this happen with a package of ground turkey? I bought this last week and have not got around to looking at it until today. The sell by date is December 15 so that has just passed. The package looks like it has had all the air sucked out of it. When I bought it, everything looked normal. Now the package has collapsed in on itself. The plastic covering is taut. In fact it has pulled in so much that it's compressing the meat. Don't know if you can tell that from the picture. I have seen old packaging expand as stuff ages and breaks down but I have never seen something create a vacuum and suck itself in. Nothing was resting on top of the package to weigh it down. Any ideas on what is going on? I am probably going to toss this or maybe take it back to the store. I'm really curious to find out if there is an explanation for this.
