Senator Daschle, joined by industry and consumer advocates, requested that the Department of Agriculture institute country-of-origin labeling for meat and possibly other food products. If implemented, the rule would mandate that all meat sold in grocery stores be labeled with the country where the animal was born, raised, and processed.

Following prepared remarks, the officials responded to questions from reporters. close
