Buying Ground Beef? Be Careful

Before you grill up another burger to end a perfect summer day, you should know that if you got that ground beef from the supermarket there’s a good chance the meat from that patty came from at least 100 different cows.

Remember a couple of years back when McDonald’s admitted that their burgers contain meat from hundreds of cows? Well, that process is not reserved for fast food chains.

We talked to Sutter Meats butcher Terry Ragasa, and he confirmed that supermarkets use that the same practice.

The supermarkets are “getting it from these large distributors where one pound of ground meat can contain meat from up to a thousand different animals, so it’s impossible to have any traceability there,” Ragasa told HuffPost.
