A fake recall of millions of turkeys bound for Thanksgiving dinner tables is causing a lot of confusion.

A fake news website called the National Report claims millions of birds are infected with the avian virus, better known as the bird flu. It even includes a fake quote from the CDC.

Memphis resident James Davis was disgusted by the hoax.

“It’s time for people to put childish games away and get real,” he said.

The article claims the turkeys turn green after being cooked and can make you extremely sick.

It was shared so many times, many thought it was true.

“Trying to say a turkey is poisonous or any kind of hoax is wrong. Period,” Davis said.

The report also included a turkey safety hotline, supposedly established between the CDC and major turkey suppliers.

People locally said it is a prime example of why you should not believe everything you hear.

“You can’t believe everything they put on the internet, because it’s not true,” Davis.
