They were very quick to respond, stating,
“We can assure you that we work very closely with our suppliers and only source humanely raised products and do not source from feedlots. At Trader Joe’s, we have been dealing with standards and practices in many different countries for over 49 years, and our buyers are diligent about making sure our suppliers and the products they provide are not below standards set by the USDA. In addition, our Quality Assurance Team and our buyers audit our vendors to monitor their facilities and practices.
Yay, I love shopping at Trader Joes and am very glad to hear that I can continue to do so!
