Most retail food stores are now required to inform consumers about the country of origin of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, shellfish, peanuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, ginseng, and ground and muscle cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, and goat. Both the authorization and implementation of country-of-origin labeling (COOL) by the U.S. Dept. of Agricultureńˇ╗s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service have been controversial. Canada and Mexico used the World Trade Organizationńˇ╗s (WTOńˇ╗s) trade dispute resolution process to challenge some features that apply to labeling meat. They argued that COOL has a trade-distorting impact by reducing the value and number of cattle and hogs shipped to the U.S. market. For this reason, they argued that COOL violates WTO trade commitments agreed to by the U.S. Contents of this report: Overview; Key Provisions of COOL; Administrative Enforcement and Audits; COOL Challenged by Canada and Mexico in WTO; Legislation in the 112th Congress. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
