Animal compassionate labels?

Animal rights advocates and compassionate consumers are raising awareness about the brutality and cruelty farmed animals are subjected to. Grocery stores and restaurants are carrying more food products with animal-welfare labels, which seem to be on the road to popularity even though their prices can be twice as much.

Whole Foods Market has been working on its “Animal Compassionate” standards for three years and will soon make known its new logo indicating how the animals were treated up until slaughter. However, critics say that consumers are already confused with all the terms out there, such as “free range”, “organic” or “grass-fed” among others.

Another issue is that the different terms used in food labels can be very misleading since the mega food industries are behind the trend.
