One Lidl customer named Jim posted pictures of their rotten £25 bird on Twitter on Christmas morning, claiming it had ‘ruined’ Christmas dinner.

They claimed to have bought the meat from the budget supermarket in Guisborough, North Yorkshire three days ago but found it was gone off and this morning – despite the sell-by-date being December 26.

‘Cheers @LidlGB. Bought this Turkey crown from Guisborough store 3 days ago, straight in the fridge, sell by date boxing day,’ he wrote.

‘Absolutely stinks, rotten meat. £24.18 for a ruined Christmas Dinner.’

Other disgusted customers who bought their festive poultry in Tesco claimed that it was ‘rotten and smelling’ and ‘yellow’ when they went to put it in the oven this morning.
