    Good! I mainly buy ground beef at Costco and it is fine but I wonder about

    I think you're fine if you eat where they grind their own.

    as well you should, no telling all the things they are putting in their meals
    that you are allergic to or just plain find yucky

    I don't know of any place that grinds their own.

    Rossi's Bar and Grill, "Home of the famous Rossiburger", buys their meat from a near-by butcher who grinds his own. Does that count?

    It was fun getting to see the folks from the pink slime company acting
    all indignant.

    I wonder, though, what is going to become of all the beef scraps that
    would have been turned into pink slime had not this story happened.
    Maybe they'll sell the stuff dirt cheap to China, like they do the

    Apparently there are two kinds of pink slime - the one with ammonia
    and another one they call "citric". I've never liked that "finely
    ground" ground meat anyway and now I know why.

    It was previouslty made into pet food. This company says. "Hey - we
    have strings in the USDA and we can get it approved for HUMAN
    conumption and hide it grund beefw ith no labelling changes". So they
    based their whole company on turning pet food into human food.

    I don't exactly feel sorry foe them. I want to see somebody do
    independent, unbiased taste tests. Coupled with pathogen testing of
    course. I have never had pink slime beef except for the McDonalds
    Buck Double and BK Stacker. I know that McD's beef tastes terrible,
    especially reheated. Tastes like liver.

    I don't buy a lot of ground beef. When I did buy it, it was usually from
    Costco but after buying some that was badly expired, I didn't buy it from
    them for a while. I did buy a package or two at Target, some at Winco and
    perhaps one other store. I noticed that the texture didn't seem right and I
    didn't much like the end result. Even just to look at it, it didn't look
    right. But at the time I didn't know why. Now I do. Ew.

    Someone here mentioned that White Castle burgers taste like liver. Ever
    since then when I have tried them, I have not liked them.

    I find hard to believe that CostCo sold bad ground beef. They have
    most stringent quality and control of any retailer in the United
    States. From slaughter to retail, everything is monitored and
    recorded every step of the way. All open beef (not in cryovac) is
    sold within 3 days or thrown out. And even the cryovac beef probably
    turns over in 5 days or less.

    I didn't say that it was bad. But it had expired about two weeks prior. I
    couldn't believe it when I got it home! I didn't take it back because they
    are in another city. It was Sunday and a half an hour from their closing
    time. I figured they would likely be closed by the time we went back.
    Perhaps I should have called them to check the counter. I'm sure there was
    more. Now I always check the dates on what I buy there. This was the three
    pack of organic. Used to be one pound per package but now it is a little
    more. And it's a different brand.

    I have also had trouble with their baby carrots in the past. I would buy
    them and they were slimy. Which means at some point they were left out of
    refrigeration. May not have been Costco's fault. May have been prior. I
    just don't know. They are fine now but they keep the produce in a different
    section now.

    Matters not from where... any ground meat you don't grind yourself is
    mystery meat... even if you watch the meat you chose being ground with
    your own eyeballs it's mystery meat, because you have no way to know
    who is still in that grinder, or when it was last cleaned. Mega
    stores like Costco sell the world's filthiest ground meat, they can't
    help it because they have no control whatsoever... it's all kinds of
    slop passed through grinders the size of cement mixer trucks, with
    literally tons of pink slime added.

    2 weeks? That's extra hard to believe. What I would believe is that
    someone screwed up the date on the label maker.
