CFA Joins Broad Stakeholder Coalition in Support for Country of Origin Labeling Legislation

CFA joined other consumer groups, and worker, manufacturer, and farmer and rancher organizations, in the following letter to congressional leaders urging them to endorse and enact the American Beef Labeling Act of 2021 (S.2716). The Act will require beef sold at retail grocery stores to bear a conspicuous label informing consumers as to where the animal from which the beef was derived was born, raised, and harvested. Polling commissioned by CFA has shown that a large majority—89%–of Americans strongly support mandatory country of origin labeling for fresh meat.
