Gord says you must be joking - eh. There are NO hormones in Canadian pork. These are federally inspected meats to ensure Canadians (and now Americans) that we are very serious about food safety. Pork products are doubly safeguarded and are also antibiotic free as well. That means Gord's Great Canadian Bacon is first inspected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (http://inspection.gc.ca/english/fssa/fssae.shtml
) and again gets the USDA approval upon entering the U.S., eh.
