Any newly butchered meat is fresh.
B--no additives??--
Meats with no additives is classified as organic.
C -- if it can have additives--does this mean no cures----[such as Italian or polish sausage??]
Any meat that has been cured can be classified as "fresh" as long as the meat as not been frozen.
D--never frozen--??
Any beef, pork, lamb or fish that has been frozen at 32* F. is classified as frozen. Poultry that has been frozen at 32* F. is classified as "fresh". It's not classified as "frozen" unless it has been frozen at 0* F.

Dutch,
Very interesting. I wonder why the difference with chicken? Could it be due to the high incidence of contamination with chicken?
