Spend a few minutes at the grocery store and you'll be bombarded with tons of labels.
These labels are created by the US Food and Drug Administration, which is in charge of regulating the food we eat, including produce, packaged foods and eggs still in the shell, and the US Department of Agriculture, which is in charge of poultry, meat and egg products.
The labels use terms like "cage free," "vegetarian fed" and "whole grain." The list goes on and on. But what do all the terms really mean?
Luckily, Fix.com broke down the meaning of all these labels so you never have to feel confused at the grocery store again.
