Hormone Free

The label Hormone Free is unapproved by the USDA for meat and cannot be used on any meat products. Click here to learn about the credible labels found on meat raised without hormones.

There is also no definition or regulation for Hormone Free on dairy products. To truly avoid hormones in dairy, buy organic: all animals used for organic meat or dairy production cannot have received any hormones in their lifetime.

Why It Matters
