EAST TEXAS, TX (KLTV) - A new rule has gone into effect, making it a little easier to know where food comes from. The Country of Origin Labeling Program, or COOL, requires labeling for muscle cuts of beef and other meats, so consumers will know the country of origin.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, however, wants labels to follow the foods through each step of the production process. He wants labels to show where an animal was raised and the country it was slaughtered.

The rules will also apply to fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Peanuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, and ginseng sold by designated retailers will also require a country of origin label.

We want to know what you think.  Leave your comments below.
