This measure, effective September 4, was taken because of the present large supply of these grades of meat on the market, and the desire to find a way of retailing them in a form acceptable to the consumer, OPA stated. Retailers are still prohibited from pro-cubing better grades of meat on the market, which are the "choice," "good" and "commercial" grades. Also, the prohibition against the pro-cubing of all cuts of meat other than top or bottom rounds continues in its present form. As a further Incentive for the movement of utility and cutter and canner grades of moat, a single price has been fixed for the two grades of pre-cubed steaks anthori/ed. Example of the highest retail prices consumers may have to pay for a pound of this item in various cities are as follows: San Francisco 31 cents, Salt Lake City "0 cents. St. T,ouis 29 cents, Pittsburgh 30 cents, New York 31 cent. These prices are designed to provide the retailer with the costs be must pay for the wholesale meat, and makes allowance for a normal markup.
