Get ready to help your friends sort out the confusion. http://www.brandchannel.com/home/post/2013/04/05/USDA-Names-Beef-Pork-040513.aspx Theoretically, this is to help consumers understand what part of the animal the meat is from and how to prepare it. From what I've seen, it mostly transfers the nomenclature from beef to pork. Still, it's supposed to have 350 naming changes so it's pretty far reaching. It looks confusing in the interim, but maybe better once it all settles in?
