I only buy ribs from RD now. I think SAMs full cut are ok, but don't really trust them.

I get pre cut st louis spares in cryo, and these are not enhanced. "All natural, previously frozen". They come from the packer plant like that. By law, they have to state if the product is enhanced on the label. It has to be part of the ingredient list. You'll notice the sodium content will be a lot higher in an enhanced rack compared to a natural rack. That's on the label too.

FYI, if you do a google search for "smithfield ribs enhanced", you'll hit a huge amount of info on this. The bottom line, read the label carefully.
