Zaycon Foods is back — Ground beef only, now LFTB freePosted at 11:05 am by rachel in events, sales
Yes, I was indeed annoyed at Zaycon around the whole LFTB fiasco a few months ago, and still think they handled it poorly, but their stuff is darn tasty. They are back in IL with a ground-beef only sale, and now specifically advertise it as LFTB free! (Yup, them and almost everyone else now, right?!) They say the chicken sale will be coming back to IL in the fall, for those who are wondering.
So here’s the deal:
- Zaycon has fresh 93/7 ground beef at $3.29/lb!
- Pick up in Gurnee, Bolingbrook, Joliet, or Schaumburg.
- Pickups are all Tuesday, August 28 at various times depending on location.
What’s a Zaycon?
Again, if you’re not familiar with Zaycon Foods,
- They sell fresh boneless skinless chicken breast, ground beef, and bacon by the case, as direct from local farmers as possible.
- Pre-order, then head to local pickup locations at the specified date/time to pick up your order.
- They schedule events across the country — they were in IL in Nov. 2011, then March 2012.
Here’s their details
Zaycon details about this beef, straight from their email.
• LFTB Free
• Comes in a 40-lb case with four 10-lb chubs per case (approximate weight–see note below).
• No chemicals, additives or water added to meat during processing.
• Processed at a USDA-inspected, state-of-the-art plant employing strict operating protocols (including HACCP) and the highest in food-safety standards.
• Prior to processing, inspectors from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service randomly sample cattle under a monitoring plan and perform testing for antibiotic residues.
* USDA nutrition labeling standards defines “extra lean” and “lean” ground beef based on the lean/fat ratio. While not part of these guidelines, the term “super lean” is often used in the grocery sector to describe ground beef at the upper end of the “lean” category (i.e., “Zaycon Foods 93/7 Super Lean Ground Beef”). This ground beef product is 93% lean and 7% fat.
[NOTE: This product is an approximate weight. Some cases will weigh slightly less than 40 lbs. Customers receiving cases less than 40 lbs will receive an exact credit representing this difference in their ZF account.]
