Congress drops ‘country of origin labeling’ rule on meat products


 

RT America | December 23, 2015

Congress has repealed a law requiring vendors to label the country of origin on meat packages. The World Trade Organization has given Canada and Mexico, America’s top two agricultural partners, permission to impose more than 1 billion in retaliatory tarrifs on companies that fail to remove country of origin labels from pork and beef packages. RT’s Brigida Santos explains how why the interests of cattle and hog companies may have led to the move.
