Product of MEX. Beef?

Anyone else notice this recently? Went to the supermarket and they had some beef in the refridgerated section with "prod of Mex." on the label. What is the deal with this? Do we have a shortage of beef here or something? Anyone ever buy this stuff? Just the extra transit time would make me shy away. Odd.. Positive note, they may actually eat grass like intended instead of corn like the US.
Only other mass imported stuff I saw was shrimp, almost all frozen is from Thailand, won't touch it with a 10ft pole. Some frozen fish now from China too, fuck that, pulled from waters with chemical by-products of iPods.

back in the day

most major food stores used to use Australian bull meat in their grinds to darken it up and call it extra lean......fact, I was there.......

The shrimp comes from the shrimp farms in Thailand. Saw it on the news few years ago.

I notice it in the stores that have lower prices. The big name stores usually have US beef (i believe)


still interested in grades of beef. How is one meat better than the other?

We don't do Thailand shrimp here. It's Mayport shrimp fresh (not frozen), or I don't eat it.

Mex beef may not have all the hormones injected into it liek US beef usually does. Some people dont want anythign to do with hormone grown beef.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

The Mex meat seem to be darker and not that bright red. Also pretty big price difference. US rib eye $9.99lb the Mex rib eye $6.99lb.

I can tell you this....If there are two similar looking ribeyes nice and marbled, or better yet bone in, I'll get the cheaper. If I can't tell by inspection if it's noticably better, than who cares? I'm looking for marbling and color anyway
