Meat Grades and What They Mean

We all see them.  We know they are there yet few understand them.  FDA CHOICE.   FDA SELECT Stamped on meat or printed on the package.  But what does all that mean? Here is a link to the FDA page that tells you what all that means. It is very good reading.

Take a moment to read this. I think you will be surprised.  By the way if you buy meat from a private source, that must be inspected too.  Be sure to ask to see the FDA paperwork on the meat you buy from a private source.  I do and I make sure that I see the inspection stamp.
