Frozen produce marking proposal
The U.S. Customs Service has again proposed that country-of-origin must be marked on the front panel of frozen produce packages. A similar front-panel marking rule by the agency was declared null and void in 1994 by the Court of International Trade.
The new proposed rule gives packagers greater flexibility in type size and style requiring only that the origin marking is "permanent indelible and legible and the ultimate purchaser can see it without strain."
