Guaranteed pasture

(article, Culinate staff)

"Loophole alert!" warned Marion Nestle recently on her What to Eat blog. "Under the current rules, meat sold as organic must come from animals with access to pasture." Which means, of course, that your steak may be certified organic, but the animal it came from may have never visited actual pasture. The USDA is now trying to close this loophole, reports Nestle. Want to share your two cents with the USDA on the matter? You've got until Dec. 23 to give your opinion.
