Default Sad, sad day...

I was in HEB looking for wagyu brisket. None. That's not the saddest part.

Turns out they had just thrown out 600LBS of wagyu brisket.[emoji26] They failed to check the dates and store policy required them to be discarded. It took me a moment to compose myself. I asked if they could take my number and keep it handy if this ever happened again and I would buy them at a discount. He just laughed and said they normally grind them up and sell as regular hamburger meat when they get close to the expiration date. No marked down wagyu briskets...I hope y'all understand if I'm not my normal chipper self for a few days. [emoji35]

I thought you may have at least tried dumpster diving to see if any could be salvaged. Too bad they had to toss them.

So when they grind into burger how do they figure fat content since it is so fat concentrated?

I was so shocked that I couldn't think straight. Never occurred to me. Shameful...

I go round and round with my sister over issues like this.

Best by dates are not when a product is unsafe to eat! Best buy dates assume the purchaser takes it home and doesn't use it for some period of time. After that period of time plus the 'best buy' date, the taste and or texture quality starts to decline. This in and of itself does not make it unsafe to eat. And no, a jar of pickles opened three days ago sitting in the fridge has not gone bad; it might pick up some odors from other stuff in the fridge but, it won't make you sick.

Meat is similar but, thanks to litigation and people who don't use safe food handling and cooking practices, things like this happen. Ever been to a meat market in Asia or Africa? What do they think happened before the days of refrigeration (ever wonder what drove the 'spice trade' in Europe in the days of sail)?

No I'm not advocating your cook that slimy random piece of meat lost in the back of the fridge last month but, don't panic if the best buy date is today or tomorrow!

I feel bad when I waste a little bit of meat...that’s just a travesty. Probably happens more than you’d think too. I remember hearing that the Kansas City health department stepped in after the American Royal and stopped allowing donations of leftovers from the Royal to homeless shelters and that sort of thing. World class BBQ, into the trash. On one hand I can somewhat get the angle they’re coming from, but on the other they’re probably scrounging through the trash anyway and eating things truly risky.
