Canadian Beef Farmers Fight US Meat Label Rules

CALGARY, Alberta — An organization that represents Canadian beef farmers said Friday it is seeking an injunction while a court in the U.S. hears its case against country of origin meat labeling.

The Canadian Cattlemen's Association said it is part of a coalition that has asked the U.S. District Court in Washington to delay the policy to be implemented in November.

The policy would require labels on meat products sold in the United States to contain detailed information about where the products come from.

The lawsuit claims that the rule would violate the U.S. Agriculture Marketing Act and is arbitrary.
