IMHO, it was just to make the product more attractive. Maybe some consistency was desired too. I think it was overall a positive switch, but not a major improvement either, if that makes sense.
My Sam's has always had choice beef.....the briskets, tenderloins, chuck rolls, and whole loins are in cryo packs. Even the burger has the red/white/blue Choice label... I've just never seen the "Angus branded" meat like this before.
Safeway has their Ranchers Reserve Angus
, which is just to catch the consumers eye. It's select beef.
