Importance of Country of Origin Labeling for Food Safety

More than 1.1 million tons of foreign beef is imported into the United States each year. Multinational corporations aren't required to use clear labels and therefore they import more beef from more foreign countries, including countries with questionable food safety practices.

The USDA’s current regulations allow corporations that import beef and pork and other products into the United States to label that meat “Product of USA.” As a result, without Country of Origin Labeling (COOL), we don't know where our beef comes from or how safe it is.
