    Yuck so, using the 17% fat chart the macros are:

    230 24P 13F per 3 oz?
    I should've got the 90% lean, crap!

    I always buy 96% lean.

    yeah - it's bad. the 7% ground sirloin i get has 8 grams of fat per 4 oz. i actually thought the 15% was even worse than what you posted. draining it well will help but i wouldn't buy it again.

    i go with the ground turkey, 7 grams per 1/4 lbs, i really don't like the taste of the extra lean ground beef. sometimes i buy the 99% lean turkey, but the problem with that is that it dries out real quickly
