Trader Joes and 'Shepherd's Pie'

I was at TJ yesterday and I saw 'Sherperd's Pie'.  On the box, the meat looked suspiciously like ground beef.  Looked at the ingredients and I was right.

Now, having been to Ireland several times(seen shepherds) and having in-laws who are Irish and only 1 generation removed from Ireland, I'm pretty sure a Shepherd's pie has lamb.  Maybe that's just me.

A cottage pie has beef.
