R CALF To Join In Defense Of Country Of Origin Labeling In Court Case

R CALF To Join In Defense Of Country Of Origin Labeling In Court Case

Another Agricultural group is joining in the fight to defend Country of Origin Labeling against 9 U.S. and Canadian meat groups seeking to stop its implementation.  R CALF Chief Executive Officer Bill Bullard says his organization intends to file for intervener status soon.

Bullard says they have time to file yet and need to be prepared because the case is very extensive and is of great importance given all the groups involved in it.

Bullard says R CALF believes the Meat Packers action to dismantle COOL is a frivolous case.   Earlier U.S. Cattlemen’s Association and National Farmers Union intervened on the side of defendant USDA in the litigation.
