In the USDA's view, any natural meat, poultry, or egg product is simply one that is minimally processed and doesn't have any artificial flavorings, colorings, or preservatives added after slaughter. Most meat products qualify as natural under this definition, so it's a pretty meaningless adjective.
ALso RE "hormones - it's not injected, it's in the feed. If they do that (and some do), that's how, just like they do "medicated" chick feed to help prevent pneumonia and other chick-hood diseases... they eat the feed, they get the meds. So yes they do do hormones to get better growth as well... been doing that for decades.
I don't think what I wrote was anywhere near a public downdressing. I find value in correcting false and misleading information and stopping that cycle.Might a PM have been more effective - and civilized - than a public downdressing? Just curious.
You seem to place a lot of emphasis on competency and accurate information, so it makes me wonder why you're upset at receiving an accurate and competent correction to your post?you do NOT want to be the gal (or guy) walking out there with the chef's coat and toque, have a customer grill you, and fail.
Part of OWNING your job is knowing the source of EVERYTHING you purchase... to talk about that chateubriand as if it was a member of your family.
you NEED to know the source of what you're buying to sell to your customers (and to your owners / bosses)... because in the 2020's, unlike the 1980's, knowing this (and BUYING this) is important.
