In my experience, it depends on where you are. Sam's Club's meats are supplied regionally, as far as I can tell, with the suppliers being different, here in Virginia, even at stores two hours apart. At my local store (we have five in the greater Richmond area), The meat is not injected and is of dependable quality. In the rib packs, some of the ribs are obviously from older animals. The shoulders are not as pleasing as they used to be, because they used to be sold skin-on, so plenty of fat, but now they are trimmed to death. The prices are still well below the local groceries, most of the time, and the shoulders at the local groceries carry so much saline that they are salty. I'm getting my shoulders from other sources, now, but I still get my ribs from Sam's. The suppliers at the Sam's Club I went to in California, while on a contract, were completely different, and were trimmed and packed differently, too.
