I've had ground beef turn grey rather quickly in the fridge.. how can you tell when it's bad and when it's just.. grey?

I opened a package of ground beef from Omaha Steaks Sunday after thawing and sitting in the refrigerator for three days. It was a little bit brown on the outside, but still red in the middle.

yup, same for me ( but not with silly overpriced omaha).

ground beef tends to grey from the outside, with pink/red meat still in the center.

what does that mean as far as the grind goes?

i worry not, though, as i go by my nose. it hasn't failed me yet.

beef freshly ground is made into medium rare to medium burgers. beef that's grey'd a bit is crumbled and deeply browned into chili or meat sauce or the ilk.
