Eight Meat Groups Sue USDA Over COOL Rewrite

Eight Meat Groups Sue USDA Over COOL Rewrite

Eight meat groups from the United States and Canada led by the American Meat Institute have filed a lawsuit against USDA over their Country of Origin Labeling rewrite finalized this spring. AMI Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Mark Dopp says if the rule is allowed to go forward, many processers and producers will go out of business.

Meat group Attorney Cate Stetson says they’re challenging COOL in three different areas including both constitutinally and stauatorily.

Stetson says COOL doesn’t provide anything for the government and is just a law instituted to serve the whims of consumers.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.
