|This week's sales flier from ShopRite.|

For years, ShopRite supermarkets have been offering free-range, grass-fed beef from Australia under the Nature's Reserve label -- at a lower price than U.S. beef raised on antibiotics and growth hormones.
Now, ShopRite has introduced organic beef from Australia that is a cut above Nature's Reserve.
This week's sales flier says Clayton's Organic Beef is "raised exclusively for ShopRite."
The organic product is available in a bottom round roast, London broil and 85% lean ground beef for $5.99 a pound to $6.99 a pound with a store card.
The beef, from Australia's oldest Certified Organic Farm, is "leaner than conventional beef, with less fat, cholesterol and calories," according to ShopRite.
