"free range" lamb chops @ Fairway?

wasserd | Apr 1, 2008 07:36 AM

My husband went to Fairway and came back with a couple of packages of lamb chops. They looked just like the shoulder chops we've always gotten there, save for one thing - the label reads "Free Range Lamb Chops." I'm suspicious, because the price ($4.59/lb, or similar) didn't seem to jibe with free range meat prices, which are usually higher.

I've been trying to research this, but is "free range" a designation that is legitimately earned, or can anyone put that on a label? Don't all lambs need to graze? These chops were great, and I'd like to think we can get free range meat at that price, but I just have to wonder...
