World Trade Organization Says American’s Don’t Need To Know Where Their Meats Come From

4In a nutshell, that’s what the WTO said when it struck down the United States appeal over country-of- origin-labeling.

But – the fear is that Canada and Mexico will now strike back with billions of dollars in tariffs.  Tariffs that will more than likely hurt the American economy and the families that depend on manufacturing.

The North American Meat Institute likes the WTO ruling—they plan to lobby Congress hard to repeal the labeling effects altogether.
