Aldi Food Stores-Meat quality? [moved from Chicago board]

amoncada | Aug 30, 200605:43 PM     36

Ok chowhounds, I feel the need to explain why I shopped at Aldi the other day. I shop there only for canned or frozen vegetables and European chocolates. I was really surprised at how ultra fresh the meat items appeared. I usually buy my meat at Costco, Paulina Meat market, JOe's, Riviera, Whole Foods, Happy Foods, Minelli's, etc, and occasionally from Jewel or Dominicks for their higher grade stuff. Does Aldi use that chemical that some grocers use to maintain that fresh look longer? I bought a pack of pork chops and baby back ribs two days ago and the meat still looks like it was processed today. I'm cooking for a date tonight and not sure if I should subject her to the mistery meat. Please advise.
