Do I need to worry? Should I take it out of the bag?

I don't want everyone to get food poisoning.

Defo take out the fridge. My dad does this and never had food poisoning.

Fill a large bucket with cold tap water and put the turkey in it, keep plastic cover on! It will defrost very quickly in water while still staying cold!

Just get it out of the fridge. If the surface has ice the middle definitely does and just won't thaw fast enough in fridge.

I defrost everything at room temperature on the kitchen side, I haven't killed anyone yet.

Defrosting a turkey at room temperature is a recipe for food poisoning. Should always be defrosted in the fridge. If necessary finish off defrosting in the microwave on the day you are going to cook it.
