The Hill:

Agricultural groups and consumer advocates implored the Obama administration on Thursday to press forward with contentious meat labeling regulations despite the threat of damaging international trade sanctions.

A coalition of farmers and consumer rights groups called on the U.S. Department of Agriculture to finalize a strengthened set of rules requiring meat producers to attach country-of-origin labels (COOL) to their products.

At the same time, the group urged President Obama to address the long-simmering issue during his trip this week to Mexico, which, along with Canada, could impose retaliatory tariffs against the United States if no action is taken.
