R CALF Concerned About WTO Compliance Panel Makeup

R CALF Concerned About WTO Compliance Panel Makeup

The World Trade Organization has named its panel that will determine whether or not the re written U.S. Country of Origin Labeling law is in compliance with its rules. R CALF CEO Bill Bullard says it’s made up of the same members who made the original ruling including a Mexican citizen whose country has a vested interest in the case.

Bullard says it doesn’t make sense to allow an international group to override the U.S. Constitution.

The WTO panel is expected to issue a decision sometime early next year on whether or not the rewritten U.S. COOL law is in compliance.
