"U.S. Appeals WTO Ruling On Dolphin-Safe Tuna Label"

"The United States said on Friday it was appealing a World Trade Organization ruling against U.S. dolphin-safe labeling measures for tuna in a longrunning spat with Mexico closely watched by environmentalists."

"'Our dolphin-safe labeling measures for tuna products provide information for American consumers as they make food purchasing decisions for their families,' said Andrea Mead, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Trade Representative."
