What does 'Certified Organic' really mean?

Free range chickens.

Sometimes these fucking posts practically write themselves.

Case in point.
Buying organic is becoming more and more popular as some worry about the health and safety of the foods they eat. But what does it mean for a food to be organic? According to the National Organic Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, organic meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides, fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewer sludge, bioengineering or ionizing radiation.

Ipso facto, non-organic foods can have all that shit in them.

I'm pretty sure this sucker ain't free range.

In fact, he doesn't even seem to be vegetarian. He is funny as hell, though. I've seen him several times. He's simply "The Chicken".
