Country of Origin Labeling (COOL)

The U.S. implemented new requirements for labeling the origin of food sold in the U.S.

Although the attached brochure says the effective date was Sept 2008, I think it was delayed until March 16, 2009.

It's a good idea, but there are so many loop-holes one must be careful. For example, canned tuna is exempt from these regulations. Huh?

I'll be writing more later with specific details. It's all rather complicated, confusing, and rather boring.
