WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN SELECTING BEEF:

Follow these tips to help select beef that is fresh,
high quality, good tasting and safe.

* Select beef with a bright cherry-red color, without
any grayish or brown blotches. A darker, purplish-red
color is typical of vacuum-packaged beef because of
lack of oxygen but once exposed to the air it will turn
bright red.

* Look for beef that is firm to the touch and not soft.

* Make sure the package is cold and has no holes or tears.

* Choose packages without excessive liquid. Excessive
liquid may be an indication of improper storage or beef
that is past it’s optimum shelf life.

* Check the sell by date on the package and purchase
before this date.

* Select your beef just prior to checking out to help
keep it cold.
