Bile contamination

When processing a turkey today, I knocked the gall bladder. A few drops of bile came out in the cavity. I washed it out well, but there is a small green stain. Is the meat unedible? I would hate to waste 36.5 pounds of meat.
The reason to be very careful with the gall bladder is that the fluid it holds is very bitter and bad tasting and will make the organ meat it spills onto taste bad. It is not poisonous and should not made the meat uneatable. If it was a big spill, you might want to cut the piece away, but if it is small, cook it as is. I hope this helps and Hope you enjoy your turkey.
