Ground beef - need help with percentages

Nyleve | Jan 12, 201109:41 AM

I'm looking for information on different grades of ground beef in the US - in terms of fat percentage for each grade. I live in Canada, where we generally have a choice of medium, lean and extra lean ground beef - labelled as such in supermarket meat department. Can anyone tell me what are the 3 most common grades of ground beef in the US (not specialty grinds - just what's readily available) and what percentage fat is in each one? Sorry if this is a bit technical - I've googled myself cross-eyed and can't figure it out.
