“This much-anticipated series of special issue papers will show why increasing numbers of pork producers nationwide are changing their position and now opposing country-of-origin labeling,“ said NPPC President Jon Caspers, a pork producer from Swaledale, Iowa.

Issues addressed in the special "Facts on COOL" series include: pork producers’ concerns about liabilities, civil fines and meat recalls; international trade and the potential loss of hard-fought gains; competition and possible permanent advantages yielded to poultry; and a discussion on the lack of consumer benefits under MCOOL.

“It is our hope that by addressing issues centered around this flawed legislation, we can further illustrate the many costs and burdens MCOOL will place on pork producers who have suffered economic losses for 17 months straight,“ Caspers said.
