Editor's note: I wrote this post in May 2010, when I still ate meat and poultry. I haven't looked at Costco Wholesale lamb for several years, but continue to buy grass-fed beef from Australia at ShopRite supermarkets for the meat-eaters in the family.

I've noticed that some readers arrive at Do You Really Know What You're Eating when searching for information on whether Australian lamb sold at Costco is raised with growth hormones.
I'm providing the Internet link that will tell you everything you need to know about the lamb from Down Under.
As far as I know, all the Australian lamb sold at ShopRite, Costco and elsewhere in the United States is supplied by the same ranchers, producers and exporters.
American lamb producers say their costs are much higher and they have to sell conventionally raised meat for more money than the naturally raised, grass-fed meat from Australia.
