Govt says no to country of origin labels

Opposition parties are calling for mandatory country of origin labelling on New Zealand foods after four cases of hepatitis A were linked to frozen imported berries. But Minister for Food Safety Jo Goodhew says the Government has no plans to do so. The call comes after the Ministry for Primary Industries identified the source of three of the four cases of hepatitis A infection, but refused to release the name of the brand or the berries’ country of origin.
