Country of Origin Labels, or COOL, tell consumers whether their meat came from U.S. or livestock from another country. The new federal mandate begins September 30th and addresses American’s concerns over international food safety practices; The Chicago Tribune reports.
Not a bad idea, I think consumers SHOULD be as informed as possible. Especially when you consider the United States’ recent suspension of Mexican meat imports. Although, American meat is not without its own problems—South Koreans are ticked about U.S. beef.
Yet another reason why I DON’T eat meat, only LOW-toxin varieties of fish!
