The Kirkland Signature Organic Ground Beef is one of my favorite and most trusted meat products at Costco. Ground beef is very versatile. You can use it to supplement many dishes. This organic ground beef is delicious. I pick it up on most of my visits. Yes, you are paying a premium price for this product. However, the quality and taste is well worth it. Don’t settle for the supermarket ground beef. Those ground beef often have unknown origins. These un-certified producers are also free to add unhealthy fillers into their ground beef.

About Kirkland Organic Ground Beef:
Kirkland Organic Ground Beef is a product of USA, Canada, Australia, and Uruguay.
The ground beef is certified organic from all of its sources. I have found the ground beef to be very consistent. Despite it possibly being from different regions of the world. There is strict quality control from Costco and its distributors. This is especially true for meat products.
I also found this organic ground beef to be very rich in flavor. It is also very solid. Many of the other ground beef products I have tasted in the past just felt too mushy. I could tell that this organic ground beef had very low fat levels. There are also no fillers. You can definitely taste the difference. You should always cook all meats thoroughly. Use a meat thermometer and cook ground beef thoroughly, to a uniform temperature of 160°F.
The Costco ground beef is packaged in three separate pouches and in very sturdy plastic cover. No more accidental punctures or leakage. Great for freezing. Since it is a Kirkland Signature item, the item quality and your satisfaction is guaranteed, or your money back. No questions asked! You’ll love it!
Costco Wholesale also has strict quality control and conducts numerous quality assurance tests on its products, especially meat.
These days, you never truly know what exactly is mixed into your ground beef. I don’t usually trust any ground beef products at local supermarkets. There is simply no guarantee their origin, content, quality and consistency.
Over the past few years, there have also been many cases of E. coli contamination. Mainly due to mishandling and inappropriate processing of ground beef. Some of these smaller retailers simply do not have the rigorous procedures and standards in place. With this Costco ground beef, you can be more confident with what you are eating. And of course, we all still remember the infamous “pink slime” reports published by an ABC News series in 2012. I think Kirkland organic ground beef is the way to go.
The Kirkland organic ground beef was prepared from inspected and passed meat and/or poultry. Some food products may contain bacteria that could cause illness if the product is mishandled or cooked improperly. For your protection, follow these safe handling instructions
