Here is part of the response:
"Animal welfare is an important issue to Cub Foods, our associates and our customers. While we do not directly engage in raising or processing animals for our stores, we are a purchaser of these products and believe it is our obligation to ensure that each of our suppliers meets or exceeds government regulations pertaining to the humane treatment of animals.
At Cub Foods, the safety of our customers is a top priority. Cub Foods complies with all local, state and federal regulations regarding food safety and requires our supplier partners to do the same, including regulations on the use of antibiotics in farm animals. In addition, we have a comprehensive food safety and quality assurance structure in place throughout the company to ensure that were protecting the health and safety of our customers.
We continuously work closely with the appropriate regulatory and government agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), to ensure the food in our stores is safe."
They also gave me some additional contact information. Overall, it was a pleasant experience dealing with this company. They were quick to respond, even if it was a blanket response and did not really address the question asked. They said they would pass on my concern.
