In January of 2009, USDA published a final rule on COOL that covered Beef, Pork, Lamb, Chicken, Goat Meat, Wild and Farm-Raised Fish and Shellfish, Perishable Agricultural Commodities, Peanuts, Pecans, Ginseng, and Macadamia Nuts. Almost immediately, a number of countries challenged the COOL requirements for muscle cut meat commodities, saying that the US COOL regulations discriminated against the importing country’s product.
