On Tuesday, the House Agriculture Committee approved a bill repealing Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) for beef, pork, and chicken.
House Ranking Member Collin Peterson disagrees with the decision, he thinks Congress should look at over 60 examples of how origin labeling works like the European Union. Labeling laws there require indication of country of birth, fattening, and slaughter. If that information isn’t available, meat can be labeled as non-EU.
Peterson says there’s distinctions, but it’s worth checking to see if it’s workable in North America.
