R CALF And Three Others Ask To Intervene To Defend COOL

R CALF And Three Others Ask To Intervene To Defend COOL

R CALF USA, South Dakota Stockgrowers, Food and Water Watch and the Western Organization of Resource Councils are the latest asking to intervene in the court case to defend Country of Origin Labeling.  9 U.S. and Canadian meat processing groups are trying to stop COOL. R CALF CEO Bill Bullard says what the battle is all about is the meat packers attempt to put all meat whether domestic or international together under one label.

The meat processors have requested a preliminary injunction to stop COOL in its tracks and that hearing is set for today. Bullard doesn’t think they have a very good chance of getting that injunction approved.

Four other cattle and consumer groups have already been granted intervener status to defend COOL including National Farmers Union, American Sheep Industry Association, Consumer Federation of America and the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association.
