I had no idea this was happening!
This attitude borders on criminal and against the interests of the United States. Why haven't we seen something about this in the local media? I darn sure want to know where our food supply comes from, and to be against allowing a producer to pay for testing with their own money is insanity. Our government should have been REQUIRING testing after the FIRST case within the USA!

To me country of origin labeling is exactly what Adam Smith was refering to in Wealth of Nations as perfect information. The consumer should be able to get all information regarding the product he/she is buying and the company should be willing to provide that information. It is the heart of capitalism plain and simple. But the Bob Goodlatte's of the world would rather we keep our current version of capitalism. You know the one where consumers don't ask questions (i.e. mad cow testing, country of origin labeling, GMOs, etc).
