When I go to the Mercado all the meats are wrapped in a big sheet of plastic wrap, and a sheet of butcher paper or some kind of paper separating the meats. What is the reason? I must say I love the care they take with the meats.

I believe it's to avoid flies and other kinds of insects landing and potentially laying eggs on the meats. I've seen this in multiple stores, Mexican or not. What makes some stores do it while others don't isn't exactly clear to me. Temperature perhaps?
