Comments on Voluntary Labelling of FSIS-Regulated Products with U.S.-Origin Claims
June 13, 2023 | Documents
NCFA was invited to comment on the Food Safety and Inspection Service’s (FSIS) Docket No. FSIS 2022-0015 on the Voluntary Labelling of FSIS-Regulated Products with U.S.-Origin Claims.
NCFA is very concerned that FSIS’s proposed rule on US-Origin Claims undermines the positive trade momentum from which the Canada and the U.S. beef industries have been building. Regardless of the voluntary nature of the proposed rule, NCFA is uneasy that the new rule will translate into a significant and negative market impact, similar to 2008 when mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL) was imposed on beef and pork.
