If you think meat labeled “Product of U.S.A.” should come from cattle actually raised in the U.S.—not imported from other countries—you’re not alone.

The American Grassfed Association (AGA) and the Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM) have submitted a petition to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) asking that the USDA change its labeling policy for grass-fed meat.

Here’s the issue. Current policy allows imported beef to be labeled “Product of U.S.A.” if the meat passes through a U.S.-based inspection plant, or is blended with meat from cattle actually born and raised in the U.S.

That policy deceives consumers. And it puts U.S. grassfed beef producers at a huge disadvantage. 

Following a “significant interest from stakeholders,” the USDA has extended the public comment period for another month—so if you haven’t yet weighed in, you’re in luck.
