NCBA Disappointed Injunction Request Denied In COOL Court Case

NCBA Disappointed Injunction Request Denied In COOL Court Case

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, one of those suing USDA over their rewrite of Country of Origin Labeling is disappointed their preliminary injunction request was denied by a District Court Judge. NCBA’s Chase Adams says the decision just means more costs for cattle producers and processors.

Adams says NCBA is not against labeling but would like to see a voluntary labeling program.

Adams says industry led labeling has a proven track record of providing value to consumers and at the same time provides producers with some real valuable premiums.  He didn’t say whether or not they’ll appeal the judge’s decision but did note that preliminary injunctions are always an extraordinary legal relief measures and that the court case will continue.
