American Meat Institute Seeking Delay In COOL Implementation

American Meat Institute Seeking Delay In COOL Implementation

The American Meat Institute and several other meat and livestock groups have asked for a delay in implementation of the revised Country of Origin Labeling law. The rule is scheduled to go into effect in November.  AMI’s Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and General Counsel Mark Dopp says they have yet to hear on their request but don’t expect anything anytime soon due to the federal government stoppage.

Dopp says AMI is pleased that the World Trade Organization has named its compliance panel that will issue a ruling on the new COOL rule.

He says AMI and the other plaintiffs have also filed their briefs in their court appeal seeking an injunction to stop Country of Origin Labeling.
