Christmas dinners across the country have been ruined by rancid and rotting turkeys and chickens that were sold by various supermarkets.

Peter Thomlinson said: ‘Well thanks Aldi for the chicken that has gone off before its date and smells horrendous.

‘That’s Christmas dinner ruined.’

While Chelly Carrier said: ‘Turkey is utterly vile! Thank you Aldi!

‘Chicken nuggets and cranberry sauce it is. Feel really let down and not sure we can trust you again.’

Mary Hannam-Norris said: ‘We haven’t long opened our fresh Christmas turkey crown purchased from your store dated use by December 26. And it’s gone off! It stinks. 

‘This is the first year I have hosted Christmas dinner and I am heart broken to not have any meat to feed my family and guests.

‘Deeply disappointed. What poor quality.’ 

One unhappy customer blamed Tesco for ruining their Christmas and posted a picture of a turkey with a large gash in its back surrounded by what appeared to be rotten flesh. 

According to British Turkey, a rotten bird will smell ‘very gamey or acrid’.

The website states: ‘The flesh could also have a greenish tinge and feel quite slimy. If in any doubt, don’t risk it, bin it.

‘The flesh should be in good colour and look moist in appearance with no dry flaky patches.’    

An Aldi spokesperson said: ‘We are sorry that, in a small number of instances, we did not meet our usual high-quality standards.
