Stop Buying ‘Fake’ Beef

Story at-a-glance

  • In a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), ranch groups and cattle producers allege that millions of pounds of imported beef are being labeled as “Products of the USA”
  • The USDA has argued that imported beef can be labeled as U.S. beef if it comes from a country with food safety standards that are equivalent to those in the U.S.
  • In 2013, the country-of-origin-label (COOL) rule was improved and meat packages were supposed to be required to label where the animal that provided your meat was born, raised and slaughtered
  • In 2015, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled U.S. law requiring COOL labels on meat was illegal, as it discriminated against Canadian and Mexican meat companies and gave an advantage to U.S. meat producers
  • Look for the American Grassfed Association (AGA) logo on your meat and dairy, which ensures the highest quality, U.S.-born and raised, grass fed products
