Thank you Wampus. Yes, it was somewhat "firm" and I thought it was frozen until I took a look at the label. Looking forward to cooking this.

If it was actually fresh and never frozen, I'd still likely trust the label on the bird from Butterball. If it says 12/2 and you're cooking it before the weekend, you should have nothing to worry about.
