    Country of Origin Labeling

    Boos not letting me post to your thread or the link I want to give you? Country of Origin Regulation is called COOL and I had to do it for the Wal-Mart seafood dept starting around 2003. People play games by having it made in say Mexico and packing it here and putting made in the USA on it. By the way I had honey nut cheerios today and they were fine. Don't think they are made anywhere but here. Anyway here is the summary and a link to the 51 page PDF file. Go to the USDA site and search COOL or click on Agricultural marketing Services (AMS) & then Country of Origin Labeling

    Country of Origin Labeling

    Country of Origin Labeling is a labeling law that requires retailers, such as full-line grocery stores, supermarkets, and club warehouse stores, notify their customers with information regarding the source of certain foods. Food products, (covered commodities) contained in the law include muscle cut and ground meats: beef, veal, pork, lamb, goat, and chicken; wild and farm-raised fish and shellfish; fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables; peanuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts; and ginseng. Regulations for fish and shellfish covered commodities (7 CFR Part 60) became effective in 2005. The final rule for all covered commodities (7 CFR Part 60 and Part 65) went into effect on March 16, 2009. AMS is responsible for administration and enforcement of COOL.
