We bought a package of ground chuck to use in spaghetti sauce, and the next afternoon when the package was opened, it stunk like rotten meat. Our refrigerator tends to freeze things, so no problem with the overnight food storage.
If You've ever passed by a dog food plant while the dog food cooker is operating at full steam, that's exactly what that package of ground chuck smelled like.
Publix ground round and ground sirloin are always fresh, so don't even look at the ground chuck, spend the extra dollar and go with the premium. Of course, Publix refunded the purchase price, but the inconveinience of having to make a special trip is a pita.
Product or Service Mentioned: Publix Beef.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
