Look For These Labels When Buying Meat
Eating high-quality foods is essential when living a healthy lifestyle. In addition to getting your daily dose of fresh fruits and vegetables, the quality of meat that you eat is vital. If you do eat beef, bison, goat or lamb, be sure to look for these labels to ensure you’re getting meat that was raised humanely and is free of antibiotics or growth hormones, chemicals that can be detrimental to your health.

After reading your article I took a look at a package of ground beef just purchased from our local Publix. Nowhere on the label is there any indication of the conditions or source of how the ground beef handled, fed or produced. As a now retired inspector and inspector general I recall the requirement for products to label with it’s origins, specifically produce and seafood. I have been out of the food inspection loop for several years. My question, are meat labels for the source of how animals are fed and handled required to identified on meat packages? Your artical does not have any mention of this.

According to our research, the source of how animals are fed and handled are NOT currently required on meat packaging. Some manufacturers will add this type information to show the quality of their product, much like a package will say “Made with all organic ingredients” or similar. Some packaging on eggs will say “Cage-free” or similar, as a way of adding value to their product. Thanks for reading and visiting our website!
