COOL Generates Some Heat North & South of the Border
Due to the new regulations in U.S. Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) laws, certain U.S. manufacturers have stopped purchasing non-domestic meat and hogs to simplify their jobs as well as labels. In response, Mexico and Canada's beef and hog producers are concerned that they won't be able to sell their animals in the United States at all and could respond by closing their markets to U.S. beef and pork products. MorningNewsBeat.com speculates that U.S. manufacturers will temporarily restrict the markets while they figure out what to do.
