This is about TRUTH IN PACKAGING. When I go to a grocery store to buy ground beef, I expect it to be 100% ground chuck. Not 75% ground chuck, 25% ground beef by-product. If the market wants to offer a lower priced substitute, fine, great, I got no problem. But LABEL it. Don’t deceive customers.
By the way, you make it sound like this has been SOP for decades. How about they’ve only been doing it for a few years. My family has always bought locally raised beef up until the last few months. We immediately noticed a difference in the store bought ground beef. When we first read about pink slime, it all made sense.
>>I expect it to be 100% ground chuck<<
Why in God’s name would you thing that a package that says “Ground Beef” would be “Ground Chuck”?
Don’t you read the labels? It says clearly on the label what it is.
Oh and it’s been sold since 1974. That’s decades.
