Look at the ingredient list. Anything that isn't lamb is added to it or the seasoning packet.

You will need to contact the company to find out. ~10% of lamb in Australia are CAFO and 50+% are grain finished. NZ does a much better job.

I've been eating a lot of ground lamb lately, and it leaves a thick layer of fat in the pan. What should I do with the fat - it's not nearly as appetizing as bacon fat, but should I just chuck it?
