humanely raised

Your mind is playing tricks on you.
American Humane Certified is also the only non-industry program to significantly lower its animal care standards over time, and the only animal welfare certification program to allow continuous confinement of egg-laying hens in cages.
“We would rather not serve pork at all, than serve pork from animals that are raised in this way.”
For the past several years, egg producers have been dragging their feet, but now all that must cease. In addition to the New Year's celebrating we've been doing in general, let's specifically celebrate the fact that millions more laying hens in this country are now living cage-free.
If you can explain this term, please share.
Would you consider animals to be "humanely raised" if they were forced to spend their lives suffering from chronic leg problems and crippling lameness only to be later dipped into an electrified vat of water?
