Meat and poultry: good-to-know facts. All meat and poultry can harbor potentially harmful bacteria, such as E. coli and Salmonella.But ground meat is particularly risky because if it is contaminated, the bacteria can be present throughout the meat—not just on the surface, as in a steak. When purchasing meat and poultry, it’s important to use your senses of touch, smell and sight. Always make sure the meat is firm to the touch, and check that they packaging doesn’t have any tear. When buying meat, poultry and fish, read product labels and look for buzzwords such as: certified organic, grass-fed, free-range, wild, grain-free, antibiotic-free, hormone free, and non-processed.

When you clean up your diet and focus on eating animal products that come from quality sources, your body and health will thank you. When buying fish, you don’t want to just grab any old fillet and take it home. Frozen fish doesn’t require as much caution because it doesn’t spoil as quickly, but if you prefer fresh fish (I know I do), it pays to understand how to choose the freshest and most delicious product you can find. Dried and semi-dried meat, poultry and seafood products may be served in CNPs as part of a reimbursable meal or snack; however, these types of products (e.g., dried meat sticks) are not listed in the Food Buying Guide, as there is no standard yield data for these food items. Whole meat: 145°F (62.8°C), and the meat should be allowed to rest for at least three minutes before eating.

The resting time gives the heat more time to kill any bacteria. The resting time. While Costco does sell good quality meat and poultry, their prices tend to be much higher than local grocery stores. Stew meat, which is a relatively cheap cut of meat, is currently sold at Costco for $5.99 per pound.

According to this week’s sales ad, my local Vons in Los Angeles is selling stew meat for $2.99 per pound. Despite the name, Omaha Steaks isn’t just steaks. You can find poultry, pork, lamb, bison, and even seafood. While you can certainly buy your cuts of meat individually, Omaha Steaks is best known for their packages that include a variety of different cuts, and offer a discount for these combos over buying everything separately.

One-stop complete news resource for news, ideas, trends, innovations, issues and more that impact the meat and poultry processing industry. Refrigerate or freeze meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, and other perishables within 2 hours of cooking or purchasing. Refrigerate within 1 hour if the temperature outside is above 90° F.

List of related literature:

Poultry products have become the largest single retail meat category, with about 30 per cent of meat sales, while packaged meat products (fresh and frozen) account for about 25 per cent.

There are four major sectors of poultry produce: chicken meat; turkey meat; eggs; and niche products such as game birds, waterfowl (ducks and geese), ratites (ostriches and emus), squabs (pigeons), silkie chickens, quail and quail eggs and game birds (pheasants, partridges, tinamou).

Research shows (Glitsch 2000a, b) that in the case of meat and meat products, the place of purchase, whether butcher’s shop or supermarket, is regarded by consumers (even in those countries where butcher’s shops have hardly any importance) as a primary indicator, both of safety and eating quality.

  • Me again your family from Chicago I’m not kidding I’m watching your video and I have never seen so much meat not even in our Costco and I’m not familiar with any of that stuff in either because I really don’t eat red meat but my family knows when I go in there I just go for like the potato chips cookies and candy and all the good stuff and her stuff and he doesn’t have all that seafood in it but I did find out if it says previously frozen that you cannot refreeze it and the butcher at our Costco’s told me that if it says that I need to go and put it in your fridge and bottom it will last for days and then you need to cook it do not refreeze it if it states previously frozen and it just thought I’d put that out there have a great day again❤️��

  • Nice video. A few things:
    Prime brisket is super cheap because its a packers cut, so it’s almost half fat. Not really the good kind of fat either, just scrap. Still a decent deal, and a great meat, but that’s why it looks cheap, it’s almost twice as expensive per lb of actual meat.
    Blade tenderizing steaks is indeed crazy, however most people have no idea how to cook a decent steak so they could probably use the help. That said, the risk is also extremely low, so while I would never put out a video advising people to cook it rare or MR…. you would honestly be fine. I wouldn’t suggest it everywhere, but Costco is really good with sanitation.
    The larger cuts aren’t blade tenderized, so buy a strip loin and cut your own steaks. It’s significantly cheaper anyway. Only downside is if people don’t know how to freeze steaks correctly it can be a lot at once (I get 12 from each)

  • I wonder if your Seafood differs for people more inland in the states, since you live in Florida and seafood is more easily attainable.

  • From a Canadian perspective that was so interesting to watch!! Some of the prices are on par with Canadian prices, some are cheaper and some are more expensive (which was surprising!). I lived in the US for work for about 2 years and it was so enjoyable to grocery shop with all of the variety available. Also, growing up in Canada and seeing all of the US commercials for food it was nice to finally be able to try some of them. I miss the variety that the US stores have vs. the Canadian stores!! This video, as always, put a little happy in my day!!:)

    A “mycotoxin ” is a toxic secondary metabolite produced by organisms of the fungus kingdom and is capable of causing disease and death in both humans and other animals. The term ‘mycotoxin’ is usually reserved for the toxic chemical products produced by fungi that readily colonize crops

    = Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by certain types of moulds (fungi). Moulds that can produce mycotoxins grow on numerous foodstuffs such as cereals, dried fruits, nuts and spices.

    -Aflatoxins are amongst the most poisonous mycotoxins and are produced by certain moulds (Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus) which grow in soil, decaying vegetation, hay, and grains. Crops that are frequently affected by Aspergillus spp. include cereals (corn, sorghum, wheat and rice), oilseeds (soybean, peanut, sunflower and cotton seeds), spices (chili peppers, black pepper, coriander, turmeric and ginger) and tree nuts (pistachio, almond, walnut, coconut and Brazil nut).

    The toxins can also be found in the milk of animals that are fed contaminated feed, in the form of aflatoxin M1. Large doses of aflatoxins can lead to acute poisoning (aflatoxicosis) and can be life threatening, usually through damage to the liver. Aflatoxins have also been shown to be genotoxic, meaning they can damage DNA and cause cancer in animal species. There is also evidence that they can cause liver cancer in humans.

    Ochratoxin A is produced by several species of Aspergillus and Penicillium and is a common food-contaminating mycotoxin. Contamination of food commodities, such as cereals and cereal products, coffee beans, dry vine fruits, wine and grape juice, spices and liquorice, occurs worldwide.

  • Did some work at a turkey farm about 20 years ago and I have not eaten any turkey since that day as what I saw was absolutely disgusting.

  • Costco also sells gourmet food like Wagyu beef but you’ll need to order it online. Those steaks are around $300 but are supposedly the best that you can buy.

  • I saw a video about Norwegian farm raised fish and it WAS NASTY… opposite of everything you mentioned.. so not sure who is truthful?
    Just Do not get Farm raised (color added)…. buy WIld always

  • Nothing to do with meats �� do you remember where you got your earrings that you had on in the beginning of video? I like the look of them.

  • I have a Costco membership and a Sam’s Club membership. I use the Costco card for gas because the store is literally right next to my house. The gas is generally about 15 cents a gallon cheaper than every place else around. Plus I get 4% cash back on gas which for me ends up being a couple hundred bucks back. Yes, I use a lot of gas. Other than gas, I use the pharmacy and I bought tires there, but for food, I always go to Sams. Pretty much every food item is cheaper at Sams. You may find specials at Costco, and they carry higher end goods on some things than Sams club, but for food, Sams club is definitely cheaper.

  • I lost my job as a carer and it was as volanteer basis I did it to help and care. I lost my job and after being a member with costco for over 2 decades they deemed me a leper as I din not have a job. I paid with cash, or debit card each time. I realised what it was to be like being discriminated as I did not have a job due to COVID> Clap for cares bhoo to Costco. They would not bar a person if they were Gay, female Black, Muslim, Jewish but I just found out if your unemployed they will not give you membership. Well Amazon here I come. You do not care is I am unemployed. Have a far better returns policy and deliver to the door! With better prices. F.O Costco!

  • I have been getting different whole loins each month, watching YouTube’s about how to butcher them. Then I butcher them into individual steaks, vaccum seal individually, and freeze for the whole month.

  • Kim: Young chicken… aww, so sad
    Me: YC, you did not die in vain… but in buffalo sauce goodness, after some air fryer magic
    (second comment yay)

  • Not a red eat eater but OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! the size of the packaging. I live in Ireland and the quantities on sale are much smaller than on sale in CostCo. No CostCos in Ireland…but we do have Aldi, Lidl and Tesco. I generally shop in Aldi. The produce is fresh every day. I have often gone shopping quite late in the day and there is nothing left in the fresh veg and fresh meat aisles. The prices in Ireland are a lot cheaper than the USA. I have noticed that before in Kim’s videos. Love, Love, Love THE WADS videos. They really do put a little happy in my day. Thank you

  • I am very glad he can afford to pay the outrageous prices for the “certified” or “grass-fed” or “non-GMO” products. It is like the”organic” labeling being a good excuse to raise the prices. BTW almost all things or “organic”. The types of fertilizers can make a difference but it is minimal, except in what they charge. Growers and those in the meat industry are inspected on a regular basis. Those that can’t meet the USDA requirements are fined and closed down until they do. He just seems rather obsessed with all the hype.

  • I appreciate this video because I never buy meat at Costco because I go to the meat outlet in my town. The prices are about the same as my meat outlet not to far off. May have to buy meat here instead

  • You dont have to cook a mechanically tenderized beef to 160 you only have to get to 155 same temp as hamburger meat, while eventually it might get to 160 it shouldnt be pulled out at that temp becuase of carryover cooking

  • When you picked up the pork belly and said bacon I did the same thing only I bought it and realized what I did when I got home. I have no idea what to do with it. It’s not cured so I can’t use it as bacon. I now know to read labels before I buy.

  • The organic whole chicken is NOT 1-99, it’s 1-99 a pound, actual cost 20-14 dollars, so miss leading. Same with the chicken drum sticks, he shows the cost per pound, but the way he tells it, it sounds as if it’s the actual cost. Why does he talk so fast? Maybe so you don’t realise he is not giving the full facts, example the chicken price.

  • I haven’t been into my Costco in like a month, but the last dozen times I was in, their meat department had NO chicken at all. I have no idea if it does now or not. I need to go in, I just haven’t done it. Also, I think Sam’s prices are better. The Strip Steaks at Sam’s are back to their normal price of $7.99/lb.

  • Monsanto manufacturer’s a food colouring used in farmed salmon feed it turns the flesh pink and is made out of herbicide only eat ocean salmon

  • Thank you so much for doing this! I too have wondered if the Costco membership would be worth it and the meat prices decide that in our house. Lol my mind totally went to bubba in forest gump and then it pops up on screen! Perfect! Thanks Kim!! ��

  • Hi Kim!! We get all our meat�� from a local farmer��‍��. It helps him out, it’s alot cheaper, and tastes much better! Have a wonderful day ����

  • Baby means baby….you are so conscientious about humane practices, but you recommend meat from a baby animal…not cool. You should look for mutton.

  • You might think a few bucks a pound is not expensive, but right now there are a lot of people who can’t even afford to keep their family fed… they’ll probably go for the rotisserie chicken if they have a costco membership…

  • “Certified Humanin” is just another BS marketing term like “Cage Free”, “Free Range”, etc. You think you’re getting a bird that spent its life, as un-naturally short as it is, running around in the grass in the sunshine being a bird. Not so much. If it is feed a vegetarian diet, it’s not the complete diet the bird was designed to eat. Part of the natural diet for these birds are bugs, worms, etc. The only way you are going to get a bird that was raised the way nature intended is to raise your own, or get it from a local farmer that you can visit to verify you’re getting a bird raised the way you think it is raised. If the price is cheap, it’s not what you think no matter what it says. Large scale farmers can’t afford the costs of raising birds out doors in the conditions that are more natural for it. They simple don’t get that much money for their products. If you’re buying at a large chain store, you’re getting a bird raised as cheaply as possible. As for “Farm” raised seafood. No matter what they say, it’s not sustainable. The dirty little secret they don’t tell you is the oceans are rapped for all the small fish they can get to feed these farms. Fish are designed to eat other fish smaller than they are. Not grains, but fish. I just hate seeing people taken advantage of with marketing BS! Don’t fall for it.

  • A photo shoot in the store while you are filming!?!?!?!?! Stop…..just quit, pack up and go home and don’t come back. You will not be missed.

  • Hi! First time commenting, I think… sooo: Hello!:D Love your channel, Kim! You are so funny and awesome:) Now for my request (heeeeeeh): could you do the cheese section, pleeease?:D <3 Much love to you and your family from Norway:) (yay, salmon!)

  • NORWEGIAN FARM RAISED SALMON IS THE WORST AND THEY ARE MOST DANGENROUS BECAUSE OD THE FEED STOCK USED!!! THE BEST ARE WILD CAUGHT NORTHWEST PACIFIC SALMON(CLEANESS UNPOLLUTED WATER)!!! LOOK IT UP!!!������

  • There are videos about Norwegian salmon you need to watch if you believe that it is the best salmon you can buy. It will disgust you to the point of never eating salmon again. Ask anyone from Europe about Norwegian salmon. He goes nuts about ‘humane raised’ animals. Those Norwegian salmon are raised in cess-pools. That’s humane?

  • Boneless pork ribs in a crock pot with onion a little water and barbecue sauce poured over and cook all afternoon on high. So yummy! Eat just as is or on buns. Melt in your mouth fall apart good!

  • I don’t usually watch your ‘shop with mes’ I’m in Manhattan so it’s a different animal (little pun there). BUT there is a Costco in East Harlem and it would be the meats that wld make me join. Thank you!

  • Wow for some reason I feel like your Costco had sooooo much meat. I don’t think mine has all of that expecially not the seafood, but thats probably because you are in Florida.:)

  • Thanks for the heads up on the chuck roast prices! Awesome price and lower than the “special ad from Winn Dixie the week”. We shop at the Linebaugh Ave Costco in Tampa. Love that Costco and the Aldi in the parking lot is a plus. I got 6 chuck roasts for the freezer. Crockpot love!!

  • FlavCity does a HUGE upsell on everything.
    I had a friend who recovered from cancer chemo and one payday friday I heard her mumbling to herself that she gotta go grocery shopping after work. I asked her why the long sad face, she laughed and said “Obviously you dont shop at WHOLE FOODS! That @%$# place has a well deserved reputation for being called WHOLE PAYCHECK!!”
    Similarly Flavcity is doing a psych upsell on the ‘HEALTHY & VERY EXPENSIVE” side of things.
    I’m not saying he’s good or bad, I’m just citing the COSTS on the upsell he pushes!
    The last time I checked, almost everyone has a limited budget for foods, esp during this virus pandemic fraud which knocked tens of millions out of work and permanently closed nearly 200,000 businesses as of July 9th 2020.

  • I was just at Costco last night! Picked up some beef too. At my Costco they had a package of ground beef that had been pressed with something to portion out the whole thing for patties which I thought was such a great idea. The already made patties at the store are always kind of tough and this way you can easily add seasonings or press in some cheese into the middle. I’d never seen anything like that before.

  • What a soft human being. I bet he gets emotional when a bug hits his windshield on the highway. Probably fought the term “man up” his whole life just to hide from his lack of masculinity.

  • this guy has fake boobs?…..these millennials are seriously screwed up………and everyone in the world knows that Norwegian farmed fish is the most toxic in the world

  • Wow we are so blessed to have so much food available fresh for us….hope everyone realizes how grateful we should be to have so much always available. Amazing video showing everything that is available.

  • Great overview. I bought a food saver so I can get some of the bulk meat and divide it up into smaller portions. The quality is definitely better at Costco.

  • Your information on Norwegian Farm raised Salmon is 100% incorrect!!! It is known to be some of the most toxic salmon in the world.

  • Don’t have a cosco here in Ireland or a meat selection like that in our shops but watched anyway. Could listen to you all day friend ���� sounds creepy ����

  • Farmed Norwegian salmon is not immune to fish disease like salmon leukemia virus or SLV and heart muscle-skeletal inflammation -HMSI.
    Almost all commercially sold salmon, wild or farmed-raised has some level of infection with HSMI.
    HSMI is a prolific salmon disease in Norway and has been found to have infected Chilean and Canada salmon stock.
    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/farmed-salmon-bc-disease-hsmi-aquaculture-1.3593958
    Do your research before making claims that your video implies.

  • So you may have had some thing interesting to say but I couldn’t stand listening to your screeching music before you started talking the most successful Vlog hours just get right into it hi I am Jane Degado no welcome back to my channel I’m doing this because of this and that just get into it not get off

  • “Southeast Asia has a bad reputation of farming, and you don’t want that.” This white guy just generalized the whole SEA based on his little knowledge. Being in the food & farm industry, countries like Malaysia & Singapore (Southeast Asian Country) had the highest quality in terms of farming practice. Even better than the European products.

  • I don’t eat a lot of meat, so the prices seem high to me. I only buy meats if they are on sale! I also don’t have Costco here and would have to drive 75 miles. Tack that on to the cost of your bill, I guess I can do without. Loved seeing new things, and enjoy going to stores with you. I rarely get out these days with the virus thing going on. Then going home and cooking! You make some awesome meals. You bake and cook like I do. I rarely measure, seems to always turn out good! I can’t bake with one hand though like you do with a baby in your other arm! you rock! Stay as sweet as you are.

  • Hey! Don’t shop at Costco..our family is small..and we are in Canada..so prices are different..I watch cause you make me smile!!! XO

  • hMMM-YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK OUT THE SALMON FROM NORWAY, IT’S FROM THE BALTIC SEA, I GUESS YOU MUST HAVE MISSED THIS -INFO FROM WAY -WAY -BACK… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYYf8cLUV5E&t=2590s

  • It blows my mind the amount of meat & seafood they have. It’s insane! �� Kind of overwhelming!
    Do they really sell it all?
    Does it go bad?
    The beef tenderloin would be filet mignon. Very pricey!
    Those whole cuts are steaks you can cut yourself.
    They say brisket should be cooked low and slow on a smoker for a very long period of time due the toughness of the meat.
    I’m not a big beef eater so I really don’t know what all the cuts are.
    Barramundi is also called Sea Bass.
    I had to Google it. ��
    I watched the whole video and I’m not sure why. I don’t have a Costco in my area! ��

  • Loving this one thanks for sharing very important information giving thanks blessed love to all knowledge is power hopefully everyone pays attention keep up the good work ������������������������

  • Certified Humane: It means you treat a living creature so well and then eventually kill it for meat. It sounds so hypocritical. Meat industry is always a meat industry. They try to play the psychological game, so they can charge the consumers more. If you want to eat meat, then eat meat. If you want to be vegetarians, go ahead. Label some food as “organic” or “certified humane” in order to charge me double the price, thanks but no thanks.

  • Hi Kim! Thanks for the video your videos make me so happy. Next month imma do grocery haul videos too this will be my first video!

  • Those country style spare ribs are so good cooked in spaghetti sauce along with your meatballs for a long time till they break down! The ribs break down, not the meatballs����

  • I haven’t been able to stomach ground beef or many beef items in over a year. Makes me so sick to my stomach. Can’t explain it. The only beef I can eat is fillet Mignon. Funny but so true. Your Costco is beef overload. Oh my word!

  • What about Empire Kosher Chicken Costco
    Very interesting video

    What about info for my sister’s diet
    She has Parkinson and I am trying to give the vitamins and the correct food
    Thanks

  • Those big spare ribs remind me of the Flintstones. Wish we had a Costco close by but we don’t. I did get some pork at a really good deal and canned it. Also got a good buy on 80/20 ground beef for $2.98 a pd. I was thinking how I could cook that meat in recipe’s while watching. Ha ha. Or maybe you making them.

  • I LOVED this video I was able to show my mom what the big deal with COSTCO. We love your videos. I have recommended your channel to so many people. We have a brand new Costco about 15 minutes away, so the more video breakdowns the better. You could shoot a video in a gas station snack section and we would watch it!!!

  • Where would you recommend buying shrimp and what characteristics should we look for when buying them? Fresh or Frozen. Thank you in advance!!

  • I really loved this video Kim!! Thanks so much for all the hard work and time it took to make this!! YOU’RE THE BEST!! Now I’m so hungry I can’t believe it!! Those big Ribeye family packs are my favorite. It reminds me of a time when I used to BBQ on my lanai. Now I can’t at this apartment, so sad. Can you do a video like this in the Bakery Department??? I just wanna see if you can make it through 20 minutes without opening up one of the chocolate cakes and devouring it, LOL. Thanks again Kim!!!
    ALOHA!!!

  • This guy hates Trump but he is extremely racist because he only supports buying food from white European countries and attacks the Asian countries, but whatever

  • Costco meat (steaks, pork chops, etc.) in the smaller packs is always SO good. Their Salmon is also very very good!! Worth the prices.
    The big bulk pieces… not so sure about.

  • This was super informative. I enjoyed it. Granted I was drinking coffee while watching and I truly suddenly had an urge to eat meat.

  • GMO just means the plants are genetically modified to grow faster and be more resistant to temperatures. It just lets them make more corn faster, and pass on the savings to you.

  • Thank you so much for showing the meat departments at Costco. Since the pandemic my husband’s been going and he doesn’t have a clue about cooking or foods. Because of the walk-throughs I can tell him what to buy

  • I would NEVER buy beef at Costco…all the cuts, roasts, steaks, stewing beef etc. are all “MECHANICALLY TENDERIZED”… a process that makes it potentially very dangerous as the tenderizing pins, if not properly cleaned, have been known to carry the listeria bacteria…

  • Sorry vegetarians but this was my idea of heaven,I’ve always loved staring at a butchers window. I remember my mum having to drag me away when I was a kid lol

  • Can’t believe this guy giving wrong information about the Norway salmon. Norway salmon toxic and the worst in the world. Search and find out yourself. This guy corrupt and dishonest about everything he said. Shame on you

  • I cannot fathom spending that kind of $ on the fancy beef and lobster! Crazy!!! I’d rather donate that money to help feed hungry children! I eat more chicken and pork and spend $ on a decent cut of beef ($9 or less/lb.) for my husband and son. Boneless pork loin chops are a fantastic price at $1.69 per pound! Great shopping with you, Kim ������‍♀️! Until next time…byyyyeeeee. ����

  • Why is the organic chicken needed to be cooked to 185 all poultry only needs to be cooked to 165 something is wrong with their packaging

  • When you accidentally said, “Bif” instead of beef, it made my day! I immediately thought of Back to the Future and nearly died laughing. Thanks for the unintended giggle. You’re awesome! ��

  • I really love sea foods..but I prefer to cook live sea foods not frozen..

  • I know you did not use them in you video today but you have in the past please tell me where you got your knives you use the colored ones please look watching you ��������

  • Farm raised fish is disgusting! Take Tilapia for instance…..light, delicate but it eats the other fishes sh*t. Farmed raised fish, has lice!
    Hint: If you buy salmon and it is marked as “Fresh”….press your finger on the fish via the wrapping….watch to see how long it takes to “spring” back. Right away….fresh ( well, as fresh, as it can be after delivery to the store, sitting in the coolers before being wrapped.), but if it doesn’t spring back….do not buy it!

  • I find out that Costco can be very overly priced for me I live in a suburb of Chicago which I’ve told you that before and I’ve also tried your Costco is not as nice as yours in Florida but you need to be really careful with the meat because I feel it’s overly priced unless you have a deep freeze and you want to spend $1000 and flip your freezer and holy crap that’s a lot of money I bet your Costco’s is nicer but again my love enjoy watching you hugs and kisses from Chicago❤️��

  • What’s wrong with carageenan? Do you even know what that is before turning your nose up on this? That tells me a lot about your opinions.

  • Ooo side note: in our area Costco’s, the “Fresh” sea food booth is only open Fri and Sat AND I learned by accident that ALL of the sea food in the booth is previously frozen. (That saidstill delicious and better than my local grocer).

  • I keep seeing this chicken and apple sausage and I always get so sad cause I can never find that in Canada. Might just not be looking in the right spots but still. I want it �� great look through of costco meat section, definitely makes me want to go back to costco for stuff. I love costco haha

  • I am a bit concerned that you say norwegian farmed salmon is the best in the world?
    so please check out the following.

    let me know if you still think it the best..

    ps: great show

  • The only thing I don’t like about the Kirkland chicken breasts (nonorganic) is that it’s only good for maybe 2 days (if lucky) thawed after being frozen.
