Consumers Union strongly urges you to change the date of implementing mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL) for beef, pork, lamb, produce and peanuts to September 2007. The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 included a provision requiring retailers to notify consumers of the country-of-origin of beef, pork, lamb, produce, peanuts and seafood. Your leadership is needed to ensure the intent of Congress and the will of the American people is met.
