Colin Woodall Offers the NCBA View of the Lawsuit Against USDA Over COOL

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 06:46:21 CDT

Colin Woodall Offers the NCBA View of the Lawsuit Against USDA Over COOL A lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to block the mandatory country-of-origin labeling rule finalized by USDA in May. The suit - filed by eight organizations that represent the U.S. and Canadian meat and livestock industries - challenges the rule from three angles. First - the groups claim the rule is unconstitutional. They argue the final rule violates the Constitution by compelling speech in the form of costly and detailed labels on meat products that donít directly advance a government interest. The lawsuit contends the government canít require the labels because they offer no food safety or public health benefit - yet impose costs the government modestly estimates at 192-million dollars. They also argue the rule goes beyond the bounds of the original law and that it is arbitrary and capricious.


One of the organizations involved in this legal action is the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. We talked on Wednesday with Colin Woodall of the NCBA's Washington office- and we have his take on the COOL rule and the litigation being brought by these eight groups.


Woodall is our guest today on our Beef Buzz.
