Trader Joe’s is violating the Country of Origin Labeling Act (COOL).  Made in the USA Foundation’s Chairman and General Counsel Joel D. Joseph filed suit again Trader Joe’s for violating COOL.  COOL requires that the country of origin of fresh produce and meat be labeled on the product.  Trader Joe’s mixes Mexican and American lettuce together that Joseph claims is a violation of COOL.  Trader Joe’s ground beef claims that it is a “product of Australia, New Zealand, USA and Nicaragua,” which it is not.  Joseph argues that the law, which he wrote, requires one country of origin for most products.TJ Plaintiff’s Exhibit No 3 (Ground Beef)
