Maybe some of you saw the news story last week about an allegedly organic meat operation in Vermont that got shut down by the Humane Society for mistreatment of animals. I won't go into details--if you google you can find out.
This has made me aware that if people who eat meat or animal products care about how animals are raised, it's good to look for the Certified Humane Raised and Handled label on animal foods.
Many folks who want to eat healthy seek to avoid antibiotics and hormones in animal foods, as well as looking for the free-range labeling. But just because a company is organic does not mean that it treats animals well.
