they use a tumbler/marinade machine and most also vac seal for easier freezing
and let me assure you from someone that actually works in the industry the quickest way to kill your business is on the ignorance......you started this thread with ....

i know of NO stores using close dated product to marinade with to extend shelf life....... this is b.s. and if one store is doing this address it with that one store not broadbrush the industry...

i take a lot of pride in training meat ,managers and set procedures in place that only the freshest products get marinated....


in this day and age of facebook and social media.......why would any reputable store take a chance on this ?? all it takes is some yahoo to post misinformation and immediately they have to defend themselves..........so why would they ever use questionable product or take a risk in getting some one sick??



again...this is a b.s. post...
No vac seal in the stores in my area.....wrapped just like every other store-cut meat. So you are a supervisor. How often are you in the same store everyday? Well employees are in their dept every day, and they know what goes on. I would tend to believe them. Everyone is trying to make their numbers, cut corners were they can. In every business

That's *******s. Most supermarket employees are just going through the motions, they have no stake in it. They couldn't care less whether you go there or not and just work automatically. Not scheming and conniving like you imply.

No not scheming and conniving. My post is really getting blown out of proportion. All I was saying is that some stores ( not their policy) but it is done. They pull meat from the case that is close to going out of code, season it, and add days to it. So if a steak is put out with a 4 day code, if it doesn't sell by the third day, it is used for seasoned product and put back out with added days, 1 or 2. I was just giving consumers the heads up, like I would like to be told

What an absurd post. OP, if there's a problem in YOUR local store, report it or otherwise do something about it! But to state these things as if they are true everywhere is incredibly irresponsible.

I've bought seasoned meat from the grocery store, and stuffed poultry and pork, and it's all been delicious. And if it HADN'T been, my grocery store (Hannaford, a New England chain) would have given me my money back.

My grocery store (like the one someone else mentioned) marks down meat that is nearing its expiration (sometimes it's still 2-3 days away). I've bought a lot of that marked-down meat, again with no issues.

OP, please listen to Mainebrokerman, who probably knows just a bit more about meat than you do.
Where did I say across the country??? I was only speaking of my own experience, in my own area

My supermarket has a mark down section for things that are approaching the end of their sell by date. I will say that it seems like a lot of the pre-seasoned meats end up in there, along with the ones that are "meals" with other ingredients, but I assume that means that they just aren't all that popular and it doesn't sell as quickly as the rest of it. I simply cannot see a store destroying itself by selling outdated meat on purpose and risking the illness and legal actions that would follow.

They put a 4 day sell by date, still good after that date, however, it is supposed to be 4 days, not 5 or 6
