Why is the ground meat often sold in 1.25-1.3 lb packages?

I don't know if you're local stores do this as well, but for specific ground meat, most notably the ground turkey and 96% ground beef, they are only sold in 1.25-1.3 lb packages which drives me up a wall because in general I want 1 lb and then have to deal with the excess which might not seem like very much but it can be frustrating or maybe I'm the only one :) Is there a reason for this and why does it only seem to be particular kinds of ground meat? The other % beef, ground veal, ground pork, ground lamb, etc all seem to come in nice little 1 lb packages.
