NFU Working with USDA, USTR to Ensure WTO Compliance of COOL Rules

The U.S. has until May 23rd to bring its Country-of-Origin Labeling rules into compliance with a WTO ruling. National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says NFU will work with USDA and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to ensure new COOL rules fit with the WTO's ruling and with consumer demand for more information about the origins of their food. Johnson says consumers want and have the right to know where their meat comes from. He says NFU will vigorously defend the COOL law.
