Cattle Group Seeks To Intervene In COOL Case

The United States Cattlemen’s Association is seeking intervener status in the court action filed by U.S. and Canadian meat groups challenging the country of origin labeling law. Cattlemen’s Director Emeritus and Montana Rancher Leo McDonnell says his group wants to help USDA defend COOL against attacks and represent consumers interest in the case.

McDonnell says the plaintiffs are now not only trying to get the new COOL rule thrown out but stopped while the court action is in progress.

McDonnell says the U.S. and Canadian meat groups are taking their case to court because they know the U.S. is already in compliance with the WTO and this is their last resort in trying to stop COOL.
