NCBA Responds To Contractor Removal Challenge

 

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has been criticized for being involved in a lawsuit to get rid of Country of Origin Labeling while they serve as a contractor for the beef checkoff.  NCBA President Scott George says that criticism is inappropriate and no check off dollars are being used in that litigation.

George says his group’s leaders believe it’s important for them to be involved in the COOL litigation and it’s what they need to do to protect their producer members.

NCBA and 8 other meat groups from the U.S. and Canada are seeking to have the current Country of Origin Labeling law thrown out while U.S. Cattlemen’s, Consumer Federation of America, National Farmers Union, the Organization for Competitive Markets and the American Sheep Industry are defending USDA and COOL.
