R CALF leaders who support Country of Origin Labeling say they’re not concerned about having a new court hearing where labeling opponents will try again to block the rule. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit has decided to vacate the March 28 appeal ruling and re hear the case en banc which means it goes before all the circuit judges.  R CALF CEO Bill Bullard says COOL will stay intact while the case is being heard.

Bullard says his group and other COOL backers still have a strong case and they’re looking forward to having all the judges hear their arguments.

Bullard is confident the court will find that U.S. consumers have a right to know where their meat is produced and meat packers need to provide that information to them.
