A man claims he found a piece of a plastic glove in a turducken he says he had purchased from a Woolworths store in Queensland.

The man shared pictures of what looks to be a plastic glove inside the turducken - a dish consisting of turkey, duck and chicken - to the Woolworths Facebook page, explaining due to the fact he didn’t have a receipt, he couldn’t get a refund.

“I purchased a turducken from Woolworths Goodna. After carving half way through it found a peace [sic] of a plastic glove in the stuffing,” the man explained alongside the photos.

“I took photos and took it back to the store. They wouldn’t refund my money as I didn’t keep my receipt, very disappointed to say the least.

“I will never shop at Woolworths the fresh food people, what a joke.”

The man has shared the photo to the Woolworths Facebook page twice. Both times Woolworths responded, asking the man to provide more details.

“Thanks for taking the time to bring this to our attention,” Woolworths said in response to the man’s first post on Facebook.

“We've since responded to your private message. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.”

To which the man responded: “Woolworths thank you for doing the right thing”.

In a previous comment, the man said he had received a gift card from Woolworths in light of the experience.

In a statement to Yahoo News Australia, a Woolworths spokesperson said they were unaware of any further issues with their turducken products at this time.

“We take food safety seriously and are concerned to hear of the customer’s claim,” the Woolworths spokesperson said.

“We have contacted the customer to request further product information so we can follow this up with our Turducken production partners.

“There are a wide range of quality control mechanisms in place, which should prevent this from happening.”
