Different Ground Beef Packaging?

Depending on the brand, ground beef is packaged differently at the grocery store. 

Does ground beef packaging affect safety & preservation? 

Lisa Robinson, VP of global food safety at Ecolab, said the FDA authorises all food packaging materials, which must meet its requirements. 

She says manufacturers of novel packaging materials must petition the FDA & present safety evidence if it hasn't already been regulated. 

All ground beef packing has been approved & researched to assure safety. Robinson: "Meat & poultry products may not be wrapped in harmful substances." 

Not all ground beef packing is made equal, so you may want to buy different sorts based on your needs. 

Robinson says shops usually sell ground beef in foam trays wrapped in plastic.
