@Amy Cattle diet (either grain fed or grass fed) does not have a bearing on worker welfare at slaughterhouses. Thanks for reaching out.

Is the grass fed beef also fininshed on grass? Is there a strict guarantee if I purchase this beef that it is grass fed? Does this beef meet organic certification? I have learned of a Whole Foods not far from where I live and would really like an outlet to purchase such beef instead of having it shipped to me, however I must feel comfortable of what I am purchasing. Thank you in advance to any response.

@ED - Any beef that is labeled as "grass-fed" must be grass finished as well. Grass-fed and organic are not the same. In order to be labeled as organic and grass-fed all of the grass must be certified organic. It is not common but possible. We also have a 5-Step Animal Welfare rating standard that you can find out more about at your local store. You can read more as well at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/about-our-products/quality-standards/animal-welfare-standards.

Bravo Whole Foods Market! So glad a major food retailer like WFM is doing its part to bring grass-fed ranching back into the mainstream. As we educate more consumers on the benefits of cattle raised the way nature intended, the more demand there will be for it.

It's all(the beef) me and my family eat anything less is not only not worth consuming but is actually dangerous to consume.... Wish our country would support you guys and stop filling their pockets with beef that is not worthy of human consumption. Thank you
