liver and hearts from mixed (pasture and corn) bred cattle, are they paleo?

I have trouble finding all-pasture fed organs, but it easy for me to find liver from cattle that is raised partly on pasture, partly on grains, and are hormone free. I would like to eat liver (and sometimes heart, although not that often) but I wonder if the grain content (and perhaps antibiotics?) in the cattle would make their livers or hearts, unsuitable for consumption. What do you say?

if the main difference between grass fed and grain finished is in the fat composition, it's not going to be particularly relevant for heart and liver...

they are the best way to save dollars and do paleo.....I ask my butcher to take all organ meats and grind them into a ground beef for chili........dirt cheap method.

Pastured liver and heart are unavailable to me, too, so I just go with the conventional...better that than none at all, it seems to me.
