    Really annoyed this morning.

    Ordered my turkey a couple weeks ago and specifically asked the meat guy whether the 'all natural' turkeys were injected in any solution as I would be brining and needed something with no injections. He swears up and down that their all natural is just that - no solutions, nada. Of course, I open the wrapping up this morning, and there is the 3% solution right on the package.

    Called the store manager this morning and he's just... 'well, I guess I'll talk to them.' Gee... thanks.

    That's too bad, Daniel. But you can still brine that turkey with good success. Look on the bright side...it was only 3% and not 8% like some turkeys!

    Don't stress, and good luck!

    Pre-soaking the bird in water just may relieve it of most of the 3% prior to your brining it.
