11 appeals judges to review meat labeling ruling

WASHINGTON (AP) — A full federal appeals court will review meat labeling rules that would require country-of-origin information on packaged steaks, ribs and other cuts of meat.

The meat industry went to court in an effort to block the government regulation, which went into effect last year. The industry says the regulations are costly and provide no health benefits to consumers. The rules require labeling with where animals are born, raised and slaughtered.

A week ago, three judges on the appeals court refused to block the rules, but suggested that their decision might be incorrect and that the entire appeals court consider the case.

The American Meat Institute says it is encouraged by the appeals court's decision to present the case to all 11 members of the court.
