    No way this is the US, seeing as how we`re the #1 producer of beef in the world.

    I bet that particular meat is from the same place, but the place it was made in imported meat from the cheapest sources and liberally combined it in a giant vat of meat.

    Irunfast, perhaps you should slow down a bit. take a bit longer to read the label, and then comment, this ground beef comes from 6 different countries..

    which would, if i was a meathead deter me from buying it.

    The only way to tell if this is "only in America" (as that miserable douchebag tedgp likes to say) is if you saw a picture of the whole package with the USDA stamp on it. If not, it could be anywhere, just because the part of this label you can see is in English doesn`t mean there aren`t a few other languages on there. Also, I`ve seen products labelled like that before. The list of countries is probably just printed on the label by default and it means the meat came from one of the countries listed, not all thrown into a grinder and mixed together.

    We say its america, because you call it "ground beef". ALmost everywhere else says "minced beef".

    As for "miserable douchbag", im sorry if posting facts to you means im miserable. But then again, i dont live in a cesspool of a country like the US and think im "free" etc etc.

    The listing of all the countries on the label just shows that the producer has packing plants in all those countries...nothing more...here in the US we import leaner beef (a lot of our 90% + is from New Zealand), we import Mexican calves to fatten here, etc...as far as the 15% fat...what the hell did you think 85% meant?

    "CJD was a short lived disease that is now non existant in the UK. "

    this is incorrect. vCJD has hit its peak but there are still about 1 to 2 deaths reported per year and the UK`s Health Protection Agency has noted that there are possiblities that we can see future peaks of vCJD

    Wait...a picture of a 85-15 ground beef label? How is this interesting or "an argument for becoming a vegetarian"?

    Fancy, were you unaware that ground beef had certain percentages of beef fat in them?

    The joke is that one piece of beef is labeled as a product of six countries.

    @patchouly, skulgrin, and Hokie: The point is the looong list of countries the beef is from. Ideally you want your package of ground meat to all come from a single cut. The more cows you add to one batch, the more likely you are to have contamination like E. Coli or mad cow, because it means the meat is probably being handled poorly. If you even had just one cow from each country listed you would have five cows too many in my mind. Hence my earlier comment about buying a piece of sirloin and having the butcher grind it for me. That way I know what meat is in it and I know it`s being properly handled.

    It`s possible the beef comes from different countries at different times, and they`re just being lazy by printing one label.

    I would still laugh pretty hard seeing this in the store though.

    Fun fact, I`m not allowed to donate blood in the US because I lived in England for too long. Mad Cow be infecting me.

    As for America being a cesspool. Call me crazy, but that sounds like a racial remark.

    tedgp doesn`t want his Mad Cow Disease diluted with healthy beef.

    Besides, what`s wrong with those other countries? Are you some kind of racist?

    What a retarded discussion. The meat in the packaging is most likely from one place. The company obviously sources meat from all these countries. Instead of tracking each slice of meat and labeling each package individually they just slap this on all packages and are done with it. Most likely to save money. Definitaly not a tactic for high quality meat distributors, but it dont mean that each package has meat from all those places. Still an undesireable label. Its probably cheapo-meat for people who dont care. Not judging, Ive been there in my broke days, in the `I dont care Im just hungry` zone.

    BTW Lol @ dude who claimed that ground meat is called minced meat in most places. Other countries have their own languages you know, but I rarely see `minced` even on English language packaging.
