The Right Vote Was a No Vote
This bill repealed the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) program for beef, pork, and chicken. COOL is the law requiring retailers to provide customers with information about the source of raw beef, pork, and chicken. Despite the popularity of such labeling with American consumers, international trade agreements prevent the U.S. from using these labels--even in the U.S.

Actions to take on the issue

If your member of Congress voted the right way, send them a message of thanks.

  • I'm trying to make healthier choices in restaurants for myself and my family. It's very important to me to be able to find ingredients and calories on a food label. Why did you vote to delay and weaken restaurant food labeling? (H.R. 2017)
  • I'm concerned about the long-term safety of genetically modified (GMO) foods. Why did you vote against labeling GMO foods? (H.R. 1599)

If your member of Congress voted the right way, send them a message of thanks or stand up at a town hall meeting and let them know how much you appreciated their vote(s).
