So in regards to feeding raw, is it alright if I were to feed my future fuzz grocery store minced meat (only organic grass fed ect, of course nothing flavored or 'enhanced') I was just browsing Walmart and HEB not that long ago in the meat section for my feline as I'm slowly transitioning him into a raw diet and was taking a good long look at the ground meat section. They not only had beef, but lamb (and I think vension ) as well! I thought that was pretty neat that I found variety like that in my local stores, I'm fortunate enough to be near a HEB, Krogers and Fiesta, all of which have a variety of organ meat as well as the occasional chicken feet (bonus point for me and my cat mmm chicken heart & feet ). Anyways, haha got off topic, the question still stands, is grocery store mince/ground meat safe for ferrets? I know that there's commercial grinds designed for pets (BARF, My Pet Carnivore ect...) but I was wonder about 'human' grinds in particular, of course I wouldn't just feed the grinds, give them a good dose of in bone meat, organs ect...
With that being said do grinds from grocery stores also contain bones? Or even the whole animal flesh, bones organs and all? Or is it just the flesh/ muscle? It's funny how much I started thinking about what's inside of our own food ever since I started doing research on raw feeding, ha.

Human-grade meats are perfectly safe as long as they aren’t full of salt, preservatives, spices. They’re what most of us feed and subjected to higher cleanliness standards than pet-grade meats, though some pet food companies use human-grade meat too, they are not legally required to. What you find marketed toward people is almost always a muscle and fat mix. Though with uncareful butchering you can find the occasional bone shard, you can feel it, and it creeps people out, so they’re typically very careful.
