I guess some ground chicken and turkey can contain more than just the breast meat (I won't get into details!) if it's not specifically labeled, which makes it higher fat and calories.
Oh yes, this!!! I made this mistake a couple of times and admittedly have had gristle in 'em, ughhh.

Honestly, if you have a food processor, you can make your own ground chicken and ground turkey. I have done that a couple of times and it turned out pretty well.
