lucy..about WHOLE foods.. is all the meat there good i.e . like the
ones which u mention with no "They have meat that not only has no
broth or saline solution added, but also no rBGH, rBST" or do I have
to search for them in a particular section.
The store I go to.. the meat counter is just up from the produce
section. And, it is right there, clearly labeled. Also.. the guys working
the meat counter have always been friendly and helpful to me. They even give
out their business cards, and encourage you to call or email! They had a
great variety too.. this is definitely not a local Kroger. hehe..
I have tried.. chicken/feta/spinach sausage.. buffalo.. etc.
Below, I pasted a portion from their website
and there is more info (that I didn't paste) regarding food safety, and that
they perform routine microbiological tests on the meat.. etc. That is their
"natural" meat. When you get to the meat counter, you'll also see organic
free range, kosher dressed (I don't even want to get into that.. it can be
gross!) My first visit, I just asked.. they were very nice.
I also noticed a marked difference in how much energy I have when I
started shopping exclusively at Whole Foods also.. and no, I'm not a
Ok.. I'll stop rambling.. but I really do love this store. They have a
little hot lunch area too, and salad bar!
Good luck, and let us know how you liked it!

The Whole Foods Market standards for natural meat and poultry go far beyond
what the U.S. Department of Agriculture requires for labeling meat or
poultry as "natural." All of our meat and poultry offerings are minimally
processed with no artificial additives or preservatives (as required by the
USDA for "natural" labeling). In addition, Whole Foods Market goes even
further by strictly monitoring how the animals are raised and what the
animals are fed. Our standards ensure that the meat and poultry we sell are:
a.. Raised without added hormones.
b.. Raised without antibiotics.
c.. Never fed animal by-products.
d.. Raised by farmers and ranchers who care about the animals and the
environment in which they live.
e.. Closely monitored by Whole Foods Market from the farm to our stores to
ensure compliance with our strict animal welfare and food safety quality
