WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING MEAT
Heading to the market to purchase meat? Before putting anything into your cart, you should always examine it to ensure that it is safe to eat. Here’s what you should be looking for. Every package of meat specifies the type (like beef or pork), the wholesale cut and the cut name (like eye of round steak). You’ll also find the weight, price per pound, total price, sell-by date and safe handling instructions. All meat should be purchased before the sell-by date. Some packages may also include the nutrition info, preparation info and the country of origin.
