Mexico May Retaliate Against U.S. Meat Labeling

MEXICO CITY – Mexico’s government says it may raise tariffs on U.S. exporters as a retaliatory measure, accusing its northern neighbor of flouting a World Trade Organization ruling on the labeling of meat and other products.

The Economy Secretariat said it was “considering suspending preferential tariffs in a broad range of sectors, such as fruits and vegetables, juices, meat, dairy products, machinery, furniture, and home appliances.”

It noted that the WTO ruled on July 23, 2012, that a 2009 U.S. requirement that retailers show the country of origin on labels of meat and other products, including beef imported from Mexico, was “discriminatory and contrary to that organization’s principles.”

The WTO gave the United States 10 months to comply with the ruling and scrap those labeling standards, the secretariat said, noting that the deadline was May 23.

On that date, however, the United States unveiled new labeling rules that Mexico slammed as even more discriminatory.
