Some people need the animal's trachea, oesophagus, carotid arteries, and jugular veins to have been severed in one smooth movement with a "chalef." But, such demands are less awkward because it's been a religious requirement for thousands of years. Also, the group has become well-established in the USA since they really started immigrating in the late 1800s, so it's okay.
However, consider a guest at your home-cooked dinner that may be willing to eat meat... but only if convinced that the animal was not "mistreated by humans," and had a relatively "good life"! This spoilsport doesn't just neglect the host's painstakingly prepared veal roast, but also hops on a soapbox and dissapears the deliciously marinated morsels on the table, replacing them with the cadaver of a torture victim.
What a crass jerk. Don't be that guy.
Wait. I am that guy.
Ah, well. Check out Certified Humane's website. News Update: I'm eating meat now of the following categories
- Store-bought with Certified Humane sticker
- Wild-hunted venison, rural squirrel etc. Health standards apply.
- Chicken raised wandering around backyards and smallholder farms.
