8E--Julv 16, 1972 Sunday Gatette*Uml -- ------------Ch«rl*»t»n, WMt Vlrfl By Sidney Margolius Consumer Ex-pert for Sunday Gczetle-Mail You may have noticed that not as many cents-off coupons have appeared in your mail or in local newspapers in recent weeks. New government rules apparently have made manufacturers more cautious and certainly have further discouraged retailers. Many retailers never liked the special offers in any case. They conflicted with goods already in stock at the old price and occasionally caused arguments with canny customers who didn't want the product but demanded cash for the coupons. Sometimes stores themselves did not bother to pass on the price reductions, or they raised the price to offset the discount. That's what led to the new rules. Now the Food and Drug Administration requires manufacturers sponsoring "cents- off" promotions to print on the p a c k a g e the actual amount they are giving off. The retailers then must stamp on the package the reduced price to be paid by the consumer and must post a shelf ¥ Off; - marker listing the regular price. If "cents-off" coupons die off altogether, the ioss to consumers is small. One survey found that moderate-income consumers tended to use coupons more than higher-income families. But the p r o d u c t s most often promoted with cents-off are high-priced items like canned frostings, imitation fruit drinks, synthetic dessert toppings, and the more expensive toothpastes. These usually are poor value even with the discounts. Somewhat more useful are cents-off promotions for various brands of coffee available when processors seek to boost volume without cutting list prices. Meat by Any Other Name If the controversial cents-off promotions finally have been tamed, state and county weights and measures officials are finding it harder to control some of the fooling that occurs in meat marketing. Especially when prices are high as now, markets tend to cut meat a little differently How to Buy and promote them under more fanciful ne.mes. (Judging from market reports, in times of high prices consumers also need to watch weights and the amount of fat in hamburger.) * * ¥ THE PROBLEM is that there really are no standards for names. One market may cut "London broil" from the round; another, from the chuck. A "cross cut rib roast" may come from the blade portion of the chuck or from the shoulder arm portion, depending on local practice. In either case, it is chuck, not rib roast, as the name may imply. The situation has gotten to the point where the U.S. Agriculture Department found steaks being sold under 180 different names, and roasts under 150 names, in seven cities it surveyed. Sometimes the only difference in appearance is the labels. One national packer calls its top round "Manhattan roast" and its bottom round "Denver roast." Many markets now cut chuck roasts with bone in a little differently, and call it "California roast." All this, of course, makes both selection of best values and comparison of prices more difficult, and even makes cooking more confusing. Most markets now also sell glamorous-sounding s t e a k s like "fillet steak," "breakfast steak," "jiffy steak," "minute steak," "chicken steak," "TV steaks," "patio steaks," etc. Almost invariably these are cut from the chuck but cost you 20-30 cents more a pound than boneless chuck. Steaks cut from the round now sometimes are sold as "butterfly steaks," "butter steak," or "imperial broil"--at higher prices. Two states--New York and Massachusetts--recently have passed laws restricting the use of fanciful names. The New York law has established a list of 358 approved names for retail cuts of beef, pork, veal and lamb. The labels and ads also must state the name of the prime cut. For example, a label or ad calling a cut a "fillet steak" also must say it came from the chuck, if it did. The Massachusetts law lets butchers call cuts whatever they want but also requires that labels or ads must state the name of the primal cut. PACKERS AND RETAILERS themselves are · getting worried by the intensified efforts of state and local authorities to regulate labelling before the meat counter becomes a scene of complete confusion in which nobody knows what they're buying. The National Livestock Board now is trying to develop a system of standard names, and labelling, to include the primal cut, before the lawmakers catch up with them. Meanwhile, our advice is to buy the primal cut; in fact, the whole cut where possible, and have the butcher prepare it for you for several meaJs. A three-pound roast is often cheaper than buying steaks cut from it; a loin roast is cheaper than chops; a whole ham gives you more edible meat than a cut labeled "butt" or "shank end," from which center slices have been cut.
