I am wondering about the quality of store-bought liver in canada. Does anyone out there know anything about this. Perhaps the States is comparable? What is the Omega-fat ratio like? Is it full of nasty hormonesthat affect the body systems(even though I hear they are killed by heating of meats)? Would anyone recommend against consumption of liver from commercial stores? ANy advice is appreciated.

Mark Sission wrote a good article on this. Turns out CAFO organ meat, whilst not quite as good as grass fed organ meet, is still pretty darn good for you.

Stay far away from the Real Canadian Superstore as a source of FRESH meat, poultry, and fish. They have been caught repackaging unsold refrigerated items in this category, and many people have gotten sick. It was televised by a newscrew, and lab tested and had unacceptable bacterial contamination, and noticeable "off" smell.
I have also found some of their canned and packaged items to be past the expiry date. I have in the past complained about this to their head office and written letters to them. They never responded. People still find expired items throughout that store. The items I comlained about were never removed fromthe store shelves, even when I took the store manageer directly to the shelves and showed them. This chain really only cares about their profits. They treat their customers and employees like garbage. It should be noted that Extra Foods, and also No Frills are the same company.

Gotta get specific in the stores you're talking about. "Canadian stores" is too general, my friend. Some stores have better product than others. Not trying to come across as harsh, but I'd say you need to look at each store's products individually, maybe even talk to workers in the store.
