Please read the informative article published by The Stranger (link below) regarding one of our most recent retail establishment additions to the neighborhood: Bill the Butcher. It turns out that this establishment states that all of the meat sold is “certified organic” despite the fact that a good portion of it is absolutely not. Further, when questioned about the farms where the “certified organic” meat comes from, Bill the Butcher refuses to disclose the information and cannot prove, as a result, that the claims are correct. This is a marketing scam. I propose a boycott of Bill the Butcher until its management provides a list of all of the farms where the meat sold is purchased, including detailed descriptions of whether or not the meat is USDA certified organic. In the meantime, I plan to report Bill the Butcher to the Consumer Protection Division of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office.
