Panel rules against U.S. in meat-labeling dispute

Posted: 8/26/2014 | Views: 446

The U.S. has lost a key round at the World Trade Organization in a trade dispute with Canada and Mexico over meat labeling in a decision sent to all three countries in July.

Canada and Mexico opposed a new U.S. rule that requires more information on labels about the origins of beef, pork and other meats, which went into effect in November.  They took their case to the WTO, saying the rule hurts their competitiveness.

A final comment period from each country on the ruling was due on July 29th with a final ruling to be issued after that date. Once the final ruling is made, each country will have 60 days to appeal.
