    Does this shock and surprise you?
    Does it make you question if eating organic meat is better for the animals? Or if that's just a rouse? Just marketing?

    Does this news change your views on that part of the industry?
    And will it effect your shopping habits?

    Does food being organic actually imply animal welfare is better? Isn't it just that there are no non-natural ingredients, nothing genetically modified, no pesticides, etc?

    With animals there are welfare standards implied.
    Although strictly speaking the word organic does mean what you say it takes on a slightly new meaning in marketing and the meat industry, probably because of the similarities between how animals are there and in non-organic free range (or at least portrayed to be in).
