Labeling Rules to Get Clarity, Potato Rules from Mexico

  • Lawyers representing organizations in a lawsuit against current Country-of-Origin Labeling rules believe a decision in the case will come any day.

    Attorney John Dillard says based on past experience, the judges for the appellate court hand down their decisions a little more than two months after arguments are presented.

    If the court rules in favor of the plaintiffs, COOL enforcement would be stopped while the question of whether COOL is constitutional is decided in another court.

    Even though Congress failed to address COOL in the 2014 farm bill, Dillard says a legislative solution is still on the horizon.

  • Last week the Mexican Government published its final potato rule regarding importation of U.S. fresh potatoes.

    The National Potato Council and United States Potato Board issued a joint statement saying the U.S. potato industry and its partners at USDA and USTR are pleased to learn about the final rule designed to achieve a bilateral goal of expanding trade in fresh potatoes between the U.S. and Mexico.

    NPC and USPB say publishing the final rule is an important step in the parallel regulatory efforts taking place on both sides of the border.
