Walmart announced it now offers USDA Choice steaks in time for the summer grilling season.
The retailer offers a variety of steak, including T-bone, NY Strip, Filet, Ribeye and Top Sirloin. According to Scott Neal, vice president of fresh meat and seafood for Walmart U.S., the company will provide a full refund to any customer dissatisfied with their purchase.
Walmart selects the best USDA Choice cuts, tender-ages the steak to perfection, and, as we do with all our steaks, makes sure it undergoes rigorous USDA inspections for quality and safety, the release said.
To promote the new grade available at Walmart, the company is partnering with Kingsford Charcoal and Coca-Cola to present the Walmart Choice Steak Challenge. The multi-city challenge seeks the chef with the best steak-grilling skills as chosen by store shoppers. Eight store champions will compete in New York City on May 22nd.
