John’s Butcher Shoppee Inc. , which has locations in Overland and Festus, allegedly sold ground beef and sausage that illegally contained cow hearts, according to a civil suit filed by Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster. The products containing the cow cardiac tissue were intentionally mislabeled, alleges Koster’s suit, which was filed in Hillsboro. The attorney general also asked for a restraining order to keep the shop from selling the products.

so...you can go to the store and buy beef heart...I've had it before, it's a bit tougher than the other meats for sure...but it tastes exactly the same so I don't see the big deal...

This is pretty normal.
I worked in a butcher shop in my teen years and it is normal for heart and liver to be thrown in to ground meat.
I asked one of the butchers about it when I first saw it done and he told me that it improved the flavour.
On the plus side there usually isn't much added to the mince, usually one liver per 20kgs(odd).
It didn't matter if it was a premium grade or regular fatty mince, it went in to both types.
The sausage mince was the same though things like bread were also added.
