(WHAS11) -- The next time you buy a package of meat at the grocery store you may notice something different.

A new USDA rule requires the packages to list in which country the animal was born, raised, and slaughtered.

The rule took effect in May but companies were given a six-month period of time to make the change.

Some companies oppose the rule, saying it raises production costs but supporters say customers have a right to know where their meat comes from.
