U.S. Agriculture Department is going to allow grass-fed beef to carry a special USDA seal verifying that the meat is from cattle fattened only in pastures. 99% of the animal's diet must come from grass to get the seal. Earlier propsal would have allowed cow to receive a 20% corn diet and still get the grass-fed label. What a joke, that's like a vegetarian that eats 20% meat! I'm glad they came to their senses and decided to create a label with meaning. [via]
