★★★★★ -in general I have always liked whole foods. A major con is the prices but they have great quality food. In the recent controversy over pink slime, Whole foods was found to NOT sell helathy products containing the slime.
-The essential question is what is halal? they have grassfed beef from Baldwin farms, lamb and local chicken ( the whole frier chicken). ( the latter is on sale this friday May 4th 2012.only 2.99 per pound)
-Staff is very honest about certification status. I have checked that the beef from baldwin farms is halal per the website (http://www.baldwingrassfedbeef.com/shop/pc/home.asp)
-a an update I went to whole foods today: they had grade 5 chicken on sale which is not organic. the grade 4 chicken may be halal. id talk to the staff before I buy it. Posted on May 4, 2012
