  • Costco meats

    Does anybody know how clean the meats from Costco are? I'm not looking for grass-fed or anything, just the conventional stuff, but clean as in no antibiotics/hormones/etc.

    I would assume their suppliers use antibiotics and hormones. Mass produced.

      Many of them are clean with NO antibiotics and hormones. Grass fed...not so much, but they have great meat for conventional meat. They also carry PRIME steak as an option and also carry Choice cuts. They also have organic beef and chicken, again with no antibiotics or hormones. Just look at the packaging. It is still conventional meat, but better than typical store bought meat.

        i looked on their website, and non of the beef brands seemed to be antibiotic or hormone free. But, it also didnt say that they sold organic meat, and beefcake says they do, so who knows. The pork brand Strauss says its clean, but I don tknow if you eat much pork. Best thing would be to google the brands or suppliers and ask someone on the phone, if you trust them.

          The store carries different stuff than the website.

          Also, the butchers package the meat in the back and you can ask them questions about the source, etc. They are always very helpful.

            You will find that Costco caters to the area each store is in. So, In California, then in certain parts you will find HUGE organic selections. The Costco's that are in areas where the demographic doesn't seem to spend $$ on organic so much, you will find lots of cooties!

            I live in the North Bay, and have 4 different stores to choose to drive to. Their food selections in the way of organic is significantly different...

              That is very true. I have 5 I visit in my area and it varies store by store.

                Glad this question popped up because I'm thinking about re-upping my costco membership and wasn't sure if it was worth it. I don't buy a lot of the same stuff I used to :-)

                I'm still not doing a lot of grass fed due to my budget, but I do try to do antibiotic and hormone free and supplement with fish oil for now. I'm hoping to get some conventional and some grass fed in the future.. try to balance it out a bit.

                  The costco by me, Im in Florida has organic ground beef, lots of cuts and whole organic chicken, lots of wild caught fish (frozen and canned) and lots of choices of organic veggies. I also get my eggland best eggs there (ties me over until my friend gives me some of her farm fresh eggs). Also, their nuts are VERY cheap. And I buy sardines like crazy from them....

                  I love costco! I can't get EVERYTING I need, but I try!

                    The Costco I visit in Colorado has organic Chicken (Coleman brand), but not much for beef or pork on the organic front. Although much of their pork does not look to be 'solution' injected. They carry some raw and organic cheeses, organic butter, and some organic sausages (even buffalo). They carry cage free eggs but not organic. And I second the nuts...great price on those (not organic, but good price). I can get canned organic diced tomatoes for making my sauces as well. The large tubs of organic baby spinach are usually 2 dollars cheaper then the grocery store, they usually carry organic romaine lettuce, and sometimes a few other things.

                    I don't buy A LOT there, but I have narrowed in on a few good products and it makes it worth the membership fee. Heck, just buying their spinach once a month pays for half my fee. Cat litter pays for the other half...LOL.

                      The organic grain fed beef I prefer to the grass fed beef I have tried is from Costco. It's a 1.3 hour drive to the nearest Costco. I'm making the trip monthly until I put together a cow pool.

                        The best product I've found from Costco is imported Mozzarella cheese from Italy that is made from Buffalo milk. It is the wildest tasting cheese ever. It literally tasted like a barnyard smells. So very gamy and funky, but oh so good. I don't know if it was organic, the whole label was in Italian!

                          You're all lucky.. my costco has organic baby carrots and that's about it! I thought they would all be fairly the same - I guess not.

                            Yeah, I have to say that's one thing I do like about California... the markets do tend to cater. My Trader Joe's and even the Commissary (navy base market) have things like grass fed beef or buffalo or more organic choices. Whereas the navy market in Washington state not so much. Although I was in an awesome co-op up there... and can't find anything good down here yet....

                            Our navy comissary even carries coconut oil... not a LOT, but a few jars so there's somebody buying it. A lot of the special warefare guys do paleo/crossfit that type of thing, so maybe that explains it :-)

                            They really do cater to the area, so requests really do help. And putting the dollars where your mouth is...

                              Which base? Do you think Pendleton is the same?
