SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Monte James interviews Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) at the recent R-CalfUSA National Convention in Rapid City South Dakota.
Attendees of the R-CalfUSA National Convention had a surprise visit from Senator Mike Rounds of South Dakota. Senator Rounds recently submitted a comment in opposition of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Center for Public Policy (NCBA) petition which called for the elimination of the “Product of USA” label and the creation of a new “Processed in USA” label.
“If FSIS adopts NCBA’s proposal, consumers would have to sacrifice knowing where their beef comes from only to merely know where their beef is processed,” Rounds said. “Consumers deserve greater transparency. FSIS should strive to apply a more accurate definition to the current “Product of USA” label. Constituents frequently contact our office expressing frustration with the gaping loophole that is allowed under the current standard for a product to bear the “Product of USA” label. The most accurate way to describe “Product of USA” would be to allow its use only if the product is born, raised and processed in the United States.”
