The WTO is harming Consumers

Here’s how...

The Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) law was shot down by the WTO because they say COOL is a non-tariff barrier to free trade and it treats Canadian and Mexico’s products “unfair.”

Subsequently, due to the WTO ruling, our US cattle producers are forced to pay $3.6 billion in retaliatory tariffs by Mexico and Canada - unless COOL is repealed.

The COOL laws protect Americans by letting them know where the meat was born, raised, and slaughtered.

If COOL isn’t repealed, not only are our cattle producers facing major fines, but our consumers won’t know where the meat they are buying is coming from!


Do we seriously need a group of secret people telling us what to do or what not to do.

In a poll conducted by Consumer Reports National Research Center, the results showed the 93 percent of American consumers want to have COOL laws in place.

The WTO should not be telling us what to do.
