The non-profit group is taking a stand against misleading labels.

Usually when one reads the word “natural,” images of sunshine and health are associated. Unfortunately, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has recently decided that labeling factory-farmed meat as “naturally raised” is acceptable. Farm Sanctuary couldn’t disagree more and is taking on the USDA with its latest campaign. Petitioning the government, Farm Sanctuary points out that factory farm animals live in confined quarters with no access to fresh air or sunlight, and that labeling this meat as “natural” is actually misleading customers. If you’d like to help out the Sanctuary as well as promote animal welfare, head over to their website to sign the petition. Avoiding the meat section in your local grocer is always helpful, too.
