Changes could be coming to the meat aisle at the grocery store.

The USDA has signed off on a plan to let meat producers change the names of their cuts in an effort to boost sales.

For instance, pork chops can now be called porterhouse chops, ribeye chops or New York chops, depending on how they should be cooked. What was once called boneless beef loin top sirloin cubes will now be called kabobs.

Hundreds of name changes are planned.
