  • They get cooked in the turkey. I've done it before without realizing the packet of parts were stuffed inside kind of hidden.

  • That's a good question, I think your Christmas will be cursed or something judging from the way my family went on about it when I did that, lol

  • No, my family lived to tell the story and mock me mercilessly.

  • I was told it wasn't healthy I had to toss the turkey that year. Something about it makes the meat bad.I don't know tho.

  • I think it depends on whether the giblets were in a plastic bag. It's probably safe to eat if they were in paper, but not if they were in plastic.

  • It won't hurt anything, just take out the bag and toss it or feed the giblets to your dog.

  • Ewww, I think it just makes a mess inside your turkey but doesn't ruin the part you actually eat.
