Whole Foods wins dismissal of PETA lawsuit over meat claims

Whole Foods Market Inc won the dismissal of a lawsuit by a well-known animal rights group that accused the grocery chain of deceiving consumers into believing the meat it sells is raised more humanely than normal, resulting in overcharges.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said the use by Whole Foods of a five-step rating system for beef, chicken, pork and turkey was a "sham," because it was not enforced against suppliers, and the standards were at best little better than normal industry practices.
