Cattle Group Pleased Judge Denies Injunction Request In COOL Case

Cattle Group Pleased Judge Denies Injunction Request In COOL Case

 

The US District Court for the District of Colombia has turned down a preliminary injunction request from meat processing groups wanting the Country of Origin Labeling law stopped.  U.S. Cattlemen’s Association intervened in the case to defend the USDA rewrite of COOL. Executive Vice President Jess Peterson says they’re pleased with the ruling and that the COOL regulation won’t be stopped right away.

Peterson says the battle over COOL is long from decided as he expects those challenging the law to appeal the decision.

Peterson calls the District Court Judge’s decision a victory for America’s cattle producers and consumers.
