A recently released poll confirms what we’ve known for years: American voters want their beef labeled with country-of-origin. The poll, conducted by Morning Consult and commissioned by Coalition for a Prosperous America, was released as the 117th U.S. Congress nears its conclusion in January 2023. Right now, the American Beef Labeling Act is still waiting to be heard in the Senate Agriculture Committee. As we have yet to see movement on this legislation to restore COOL, we are especially motivated by the polls results:
- 86% of American voters support the ‘American Beef Labeling Act,’ legislation requiring country-of-origin labeling for all beef sold in the United States.
- 89% of American voters are concerned that importers of foreign beef can legally put a U.S. food safety inspection sticker on a package containing beef born, raised, and harvested outside of the U.S.
- 90% of American voters are concerned that importers of foreign beef can legally put a ‘Product of U.S.A’ sticker on a package of beef born, raised, and harvested outside of the U.S.
The American Beef Labeling Act still needs co-sponsors to move forward. If you, like most Americans, support COOL, call Senator Daines’ office at (202) 224-2651 and ask him to co-sponsor the American Beef Labeling Act.
