H.R. 2393: Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2393 in the House.

The Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015 would repeal the requirement for meat products to be labeled with their country of origin. Currently meat products must include information on where the animal was bred, raised, and slaughtered. The Canadian government filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) to remove the labeling as a violation of trade agreements. The WTO approved the Canadian complaint on the grounds that the United States labeling policy discriminates against meat products from border countries. The bill passed the House with a vote of 300-131. Only 10 Republicans voted nay while 66 Democrats voted yea. The bill will move on to the Senate.
