Due to the repeal of the Country-of-Origin Labeling law in 2015, there is no clear definition for what constitutes a U.S. beef product. For example, cattle or beef that is imported into our borders and then undergoes further processing or handling at a USDA-inspected facility can be labeled as a "Product of the United States”, even if the handling of the product was minimal.This lack of a clearly defined label is highly misleading to the consumer. Consumers are only able to make wise choices if provided the information they need to make those choices.

Clear, Transparent, Defined labeling fulfills: See to continue.


As consumers of beef and United States cattle producers, we find it disturbing that clear, transparent country of origin labeling is not provided to the consumer at the point of purchase.

In 2015, the definitions for country of origin labeling were repealed on beef, leaving the consumer unable to determine where the beef they are purchasing comes from. Consumers can only make wise choices if provided the information they need to make those choices.
