From the Summary: "The 2002 farm bill (P.L. [Public Law] 107-171) required retailers to provide country-of-origin labeling [COOL] for fresh produce, red meats, peanuts, and seafood by September 30, 2004. Congress twice postponed implementation for all but seafood; COOL now must be implemented by September 30, 2008. In the 110th Congress, a new omnibus farm bill (P.L. 110-246) maintains this date but modifies some labeling and record-keeping requirements and extends the law to goat meat, chicken, ginseng, pecans, and macadamia nuts. Elsewhere, some lawmakers have proposed new COOL requirements for other foods and food ingredients, as part of a proposed overhaul of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.'"
