COOL Tags Help ID Meat Sources for Safe Eating

The meat industry has been moving from the past into the future on several fronts, not least of them ways to ID the country of origin with COOL labeling (County Of Origin Labeling), not unlike the COOL requirements for clothing, furs, toys, etc. Requirements for COOL IDs are a principal vector driving the RFID tags in today’s food herds.   http://www.drovers.com/news_editorial.asp?pgID=675&ed_id=5026

South St Paul-based Digital Angel Corp* (Nasdaq: DIGA) through its highly respected and longlived Destron-Fearing division is a main supplier of RFID chips and readers to cattle herds, fisheries, poultry farms, etc. 

This week and last we have seen several reports of dioxin in meat from Irish cattle — and we thought Mad Cow was the worst that could happen.  Do you know where YOUR dinner came from?  Have a look at http://www.digitalangelcorp.com and http://www.destronfearing.com.
