R CALF Leader Disappointed At Lawsuit Challenging COOL

R CALF Leader Disappointed At Lawsuit Challenging COOL

 

R CALF officials are expressing disappointment with this week’s filing of a lawsuit by eight meat groups challenging USDA’s Country of Origin Labeling law.  R CALF CEO Bill Bullard says three of the eight groups, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Pork Producers Council and North American Meat Association all receive check off funding which is not to be used for political lobbying.

Bullard says some type of action needs to be taken to keep the groups from misusing these government funds.

He also says that the meat group’s claim in the lawsuit is baseless.

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