How to Buy Fresh Meat
Choose wrapped packages without any tears, holes or leaks. There should be little or no liquid in the bottom of the tray.
Make sure the package is cold and feels firm. Avoid packages that are stacked too high in the meat case because they may not have been kept cold enough.
Check the sell-by date and use within 2 days.
Put packages of meat in plastic bags before putting them in your grocery cart so bacteria in the juices don’t contaminate other foods.
Don’t buy or use meat that has turned gray, has an off odor or feels slimy.
Refrigerate meat as soon as you get home from shopping. If it will take longer than 30 minutes to get it home, keep it cold in a cooler with ice packs.
