As is made plain by the offerings in our stores, we are interested in making available to our customers products made with meat and poultry raised without the use of antibioticsâ€”and our interest comes from feedback from our customers. We go to great lengths to make these items as consistently available as possible and are focused on the value they presentâ€”great quality at a great price. In support of our customers' looking for a variety of meat and poultry options, we continue to develop new sources to support new product offerings across a range of attributes, including antibiotic-free (ABF) products.
On August 31, 2016 a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a challenge to this policy from a medical marijuana patient in Wilson v. Lynch. The opinion states: "Wilson could have amassed legal firearms before acquiring a registry card, and [federal statutes] and the Open Letter would not impede her right to keep her firearms or to use them to protect herself and her home. In addition, Wilson could acquire firearms and exercise her right to self-defense at any time by surrendering her registry card, thereby demonstrating to a firearms dealer that there is no reasonable cause to believe she is an unlawful drug user.”
