Butterball - The last 3 I’ve purchased Stinks
I’m going to find another company to buy my turkey breast tenderloins. Butterball turkey breast tenderloins started stinking a year or so ago. Smells rotten. I know how they are suppose to smell I’ve been eating them for years. Customer service blames some vinegar...

After over thirty years cooking fresh turkeys for thanksgiving I thought I’d try a butterball for the first time in many years. It came out tough and games. In fact it was so games I tried to make turkey salad out of the leftovers (there was a lot because it was awful...

Read the label and you will find something to the effect of "water" and other ingredients added. This is common and is supposedly to make the turkey more moist. It actually ad...

We chose to stay home for Thanksgiving & my husband bought a Butterball turkey breast to go with what amounted to very mediocre fixings from Harris Teeter. The mediocre fixing...

We have used Butterball turkeys both last year and this year and both times we have followed the thawing directions but no matter what there's always grey spots and areas that need to be cut off for freezer burn. Honestly, I don't even know how to explain it currently,...

When I was a kid my mother always made Butterball Turkeys for Thanksgiving and they were delicious. I remember them starting this gimmick with an item in the turkey that popped up when the turkey was supposedly done. Thousands of people ended up in the hospital with...

Turkeys are turkeys. Buy a store brand turkey breast for 99 cents on sale and use a meat thermometer. You will be a happy camper. When you buy a Butterball you are paying a pr...
