The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced a top-to-bottom review of the “Product of the USA” label, which will inform a forthcoming rulemaking on this topic. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said “American consumers depend upon accurate, transparent labels to obtain important information about the food they consume. American farmers and ranchers depend upon those same labels to convey information about their products that consumer’s value and demand.”

Rod Bain has a story explaining what USDA will be looking at to provide greater clarification within a voluntary labeling system for meat, poultry and processed eggs.
