Agriculture Groups Voice Support for Country-of-Origin Labeling

Agriculture groups are voicing their support for country-of-origin labeling on meat to ensure the protection of America’s family farmers, consumers and farm animals. Members of eight state agriculture councils of The Humane Society of the United States signed a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman urging him to appeal the World Trade Organization’s recent decision against the U.S. COOL rule.

The COOL regulations require that meat products contain labels specifying where the livestock was born, raised and slaughtered. Labeling provides consumers with important information in the marketplace, and helps consumers who want to buy from U.S. family farmers and ranchers, rather than industrial corporations that may commingle meat products from several foreign countries.

The letter was signed by HSUS State Agriculture Council members in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio and Oklahoma.
