Lawsuit: Imported Beef Likely Mislabeled

Bill-Bullard-CEO-283x237R-CALF USA’s Bill Bullard comments on the lawsuit his organization and the Cattle Producers of Washington (CPoW) filed against the U.S. Department of Agriculture for allegedly mislabeling hundreds of millions of pounds of imported beef as “Products of the USA.”

In their lawsuit filed in June against USDA and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, the groups claim that the Tariff Act of 1930 requires imported beef to bear a label denoting the foreign country of origin of the beef all the way to the consumer unless the beef undergoes a substantial transformation in the U.S.
