Appeals court rules in favor of meat labels

Washington (AP) - A federal appeals court is allowing labels on meat products that say where the animals were born, raised and slaughtered.

Government rules took effect last year that require labels on steaks, ribs and other cuts of meat that include country of origin information.

But the meat industry tried block the rules in court. The industry argues the labels go beyond what Congress intended when it wrote the law and violate First Amendment rights to freedom of speech.

But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled those claims were unlikely to succeed in court and refused to block the labeling rules, agreeing with a lower federal court.
