Not so COOL laws for meat WTO tells USA

The World Trade Organisation (WTO) has ruled that the USA country-of-origin labelling laws (COOL) do discriminate against meat importers such as Mexico and Canada. As a consequence America will have to amend its labelling laws.

The Canadians claim that since March 2009, when the US began requiring country of origin labels on meat, its pork industry has lost $1.4 billion and its beef industry $400 million a year.

The USA will have up to 15 months to amend its COOL laws.
