Label-Able: Certified Humane Raised & Handled

Label-Able: Certified Humane Raised & Handled

The Certified Humane Raised & Handled label certifies that animals raised for dairy, lamb, poultry and beef products are treated in a humane manner. This includes that the animals have access to clean and sufficient food and water as well as a safe and healthy environment from birth through to their last day. This term is used on beef, chicken, lamb, pork, turkey and eggs.

Certified Humane Raised & Handled also means that growth hormones are prohibited and that the animals are raised without antibiotics. (A big plus!) Furthermore, the producers must comply with environmental standards. While the processors must meet The American Meat Institute Standards.

Fit's Tip: Buying products with the Certified Humane Raised & Handled label is not only better for the animals but also is widely believed to be better for your health as you are not ingesting unnecessary growth hormones and antibiotics. Because the egg industry can be so twisted and hard to navigate, I always look for eggs with the CHR&H label as it is one of the few determinants in where the eggs came from.
