In consumer news a new policy started on Monday that tells you exactly where your food comes from.
Labels on most fresh meats, some fruits, vegetables land other foods will list where the food originated. Some meat labels will also list where the animal was born, raised and slaughtered. Congress enacted the policy last year as part of a wide ranging farm bill. Food Safety groups have lobbied for such a policy for years and it's highly popular with ranchers in the northern part of the United States, which competes with Canadian cattle producers.
