Quality of bacon labeled Whole30 approved

I've noticed bacon at our Whole Foods that is stamped with a "Whole30 approved" stamp. Is it only because it does not contain sugar, or is it also pastured pork? Just wondering if anyone knew about the bacon(s) that get this stamp if they were both or not!

Thanks. Yes, I know you don't have to eat pastured, but I also know that Whole9 has a manifesto on bacon that talks about only sourcing your bacon from pastured sources. So, I didn't know if on this one food, they would only put the stamp on pastured or not? I also personally won't buy factory farmed pork, so I didn't know if this was factory farmed or not.

You can read about the criteria for the Whole30 approved program here:  https://whole30.com/images/approved/whole30-approved-info.pdf

If you aren't sure if the brand is really approved or if someone is using the sticker without permission, you can check the list here:  https://whole30.com/whole30-approved/ (hopefully that's not the case, but it could happen).
