What does ‘organic meat’ really mean? It might give you a warm glow to buy such food at the grocery, but it's not really well defined. That is something that the ASPCA have been working on changing.
Specifically, the organization, which has a long history of promoting animal welfare, wants more standards introduced which define how animals being bred for food are raised and treated. Ultimately the definition will be determined in the United States by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
I recently spoke with Daisy Freund, ASPCA Director of Farm Animal Welfare, who explains her thoughts on what changes may be coming in this video.
