Don't Be Fooled into Buying RED RED Meat
We like our steaks fresh and natural. We often stay away from anything that's just too red. If you look above, you can see two steaks of the same age - TWO WEEKS OLD. Scary isn't it. The top steak has been injected with red dye to make it seem fresh. Yuck. See what Safe Tables has to say about it. You may also want to read this article in the New York Times archive on how consumers are being tricked into thinking red red meat is fresh.

I wasn't really aware of meat dyes until I recently picked up a package of lamb loin chops from our local Hannaford. The package date said it was good for three days and it looked like it was just cut. The whole room smelled like rotten eggs when I opened the package. I just couldn't believe it was the meat that" looked" so fresh. Stores should not be allowed to use these dyes...they're gonna kill somebody!
