"whole beef tenderloins" came with required ground beef-did I get ripped off?

I woke up this morning to check the circulars and found that "choice grade whole beef tenderloin" was 6.99 a pound at my local store as advertised on their website! When I got to the store, the tenderloins were wrapped together with about a pound of ground beef per loin. I was scared to ask the butcher what was up with this at the store(silly, I know), so I bought it. When I got home I ended up calling the meat department and they said that the ground meat was indeed tenderloin. Still, I feel ripped off. The ad says "whole beef tenderloin"-ground tenderloin is not whole beef tenderloin.

Is this common or do I have a legitimate concern? Thanks in advance.
