Fresh turkeys quite often end up frozen on their way to the stores. It's impossible to regulate the temperature in the reefers such that the same temperature is present from front to back and top to bottom. So many turkeys freeze on route. I've been on fresh turkey deliveries with my father in-law; the truck was loaded and emptied on the same day - so we didn't have that problem. But when we'd see pallets of competitor's "fresh" turkeys we'd always poke them to test for freshness and many were frozen hard. The meat managers would almost always leave the pallets out of the refrigerators until they thawed out. The good news is that I've never met anyone who could taste the difference between a quality fresh or frozen turkey :)
