Mystery meat in America? WTO strikes down country-of-origin labeling in U.S. grocery stores

by Ethan A. Huff, Natural News:

Mexico and Canada have succeeded in a joint effort to strike down an American regulatory policy passed in 2008 that requires country-of-origin labeling (COOL) on meat sold in the U.S. Public Citizen reports that the World Trade Organization (WTO) has ruled against the U.S. in a case regarding the matter, a move that will potentially expose millions of Americans to “mystery” meat from unknown origins.

These rules prohibit WTO member countries from engaging in so-called unfair trade practices that discriminate against other WTO member countries.

    One more reason to buy locally from a farmer you know. I live in a rural and semi-rural area and I already know people who only eat it when raise their own cattle. They know exactly where that cow has been and what food & meds it has been given. Many people who commute 30 miles into the city have a minifarm out in the country.

    The health dept. had a fit but local food sustainability forced where I live got it made legal to keep six chickens in your backyard (no roosters because they are noisy). The health dept. said it was unsanitary and they didn’t want it but city council voted it in anyway.
