I just cooked a package of organic, ground turkey that was smelly. Is it safe to eat?
I never eat anything smelly, unless I know for sure that that's the right smell (durian, for example - though frankly I won't eat that either). If I try to eat something that doesn't smell right I am so distracted by all the food poisoning possibilities that I can't possibly enjoy the food, even if ultimately it's ok. Don't do it!!

I wouldn't. Well I mean smelly how? It should smell like, well actually not like much at first. Don't risk it.
God gave you your senses and instincts to prevent you from dying. Still don't know how the first brave soul decided to slurp down a raw oyster, but I am grateful for them. Your sense of smell is a great indicator of problematic food-follow it.
