Mexico says US fails to respect labeling rules

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

The United States is not respecting a World Trade Organization ruling on meat labeling, Mexico's Agriculture Minister Enrique Martinez said.

"We can't understand why once the very WTO issues a ruling, the government of the United States does not respect it," Martinez said.

Meat exporters in Canada and Mexico say the new rules would cut even deeper into cattle and hog shipments that have already slumped by as much as half in the last four years.
