WTO panel judges US tuna labels too restrictive in victory for Mexico

GENEVA -- The popular “dolphin-safe” labels used to market tuna sold in the U.S. are illegal because they restrict too much trade, a World Trade Organization (WTO) panel ruled in handing a partial victory to Mexico.

The WTO panel concluded the labels authorized by the U.S. Commerce Department “are more trade-restrictive than necessary to achieve a legitimate objective” of letting consumers know whether dolphins were accidentally harmed in tuna fishing.
