Metallic sheen on days old deli meats

SlicedMeatsFilter: Anyone else noticed that metallic sheen that some deli meats get when they've been around for a few days? Seen most often on corned beef, but it will show up on ham too. What the heck is it? And what do you do to limit its appearance (Refrigeration does nothing! Nothing, I say!)

That being said, this is only about deli meat appearance. I consume metallic-sheen'd meats all the time.
