I did that, too!
I knew there was a bag inside ... but I didn't know there was two!
I was so grossed out taking the bag out that I wore rubber gloves and used tongs. That was the first and last turkey I've ever fixed. LOL
Maybe I'll cook next year. My mom always insists, but it gets harder and harder for her each year, especially now since medical complications meant she had to give up her Naproxen, which she took for her arthritis.
