On Friday, December 18, Congress repealed the country-of-origin labeling rule (“COOL”) for beef and pork with a measure added to the omnibus budget bill, which President Barack Obama signed into law the same day.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack released the following statement regarding the language in the omnibus bill repealing the country of origin labeling requirements for beef and pork products.

"The omnibus bill repealed the country of origin labeling (COOL) requirements for muscle cuts of beef and pork, and ground beef and pork. Effective immediately, USDA is not enforcing the COOL requirements for muscle cut and ground beef and pork outlined in the January 2009 and May 2013 final rules."

USDA will be amending the COOL regulations as expeditiously as possible to reflect the repeal of the beef and pork provisions. In addition, all imported and domestic meat will continue to be subject to rigorous inspections by USDA to ensure food safety.
