Zaycon Foods...

There were quite a few people that asked me about the food from Zaycon Foods - where does it come from? Is it organic? etc...

So, I thought you'd be interested in this response to my inquiries...

"Our chicken is provided by several well-known suppliers in the United states, Sanderson Farms, Peco Foods, and Pilgrims. The chicken are generally housed in large barnlike structures, designed to protect from predators, and the elements. The chickens are not caged, but free to roam around the facility in which they are housed. All our suppliers feed their flocks with corn and soy grown in the USA. As you probably know, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are allowed in corn and soy production within our country. So it is possible the chickens have feed that contained GMOs. The use of added hormones in chicken is prohibited by the USDA. The only hormones found in our chickens are those that occur naturally. Antibiotics may be used at times in the life of a bird if illness is present. If antibiotics are required to keep our chickens in the best possible health, they are used under the strict supervision of highly trained veterinarians. Our chicken supplier provides 100% natural chicken. This means they don’t add anything to the fresh chicken. There are no additives, artificial ingredients or preservatives. Some companies add a solution to their fresh chicken products that can include water, salt, carrageenan (a seaweed extract) or broth. Ours is always a single ingredient product: 100% natural chicken.

The ground beef is processed here in the USA by a Midwest Packing Company. We are not offering completely grass fed beef at this time. The beef cattle have a grass diet which is supplemented by grain after they reach a certain weight. There are no hormones or antibiotics in the beef and it is 100% grown in the USA. I hope this answers your question.

Attached is the Bacon Food Label. Have a great Holiday Season!"

I couldn't find the bacon food label - if you want it, though, I'll get it again... :)
