All ground beef comes designated as Extra Lean, Lean, Medium or Regular, based on the maximum fat content. This designation is the same for all ground meats: beef, turkey, veal, chicken, pork and lamb.
Ground beef is 100% beef with no additives, fillers or colours.
The colour of cooked ground beef is not a reliable indicator of doneness. For example, ground beef that is fully cooked to (160°F/71°C), may look pink if the meat is combined with natural occurring nitrites from bacon or some vegetables. OR, ground beef may look grey in appearance before it is fully cooked (i.e. when it is less than 160°F/71°C), due to factors like aging, etc.
Use a digital instant read thermometer as the most reliable way to determine that ground beef is cooked to the proper doneness.
