PFI Commends CBA Studies on Tinplate and Steel Tariffs


“PFI appreciates the studies conducted by the Consumer Brands Association [CBA] on the impact of tinplate steel tariffs. The studies released yesterday by CBA clearly show that implementing proposed tariffs of up to 300% on tinplate steel imports will harm American consumers and manufacturing jobs. It is vital that the Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission deny imposition of these tariffs. Imposing these additional tariffs on consumer goods will increase production costs of canned cat and dog food and those costs will be passed down to Americans who rely on affordable, quality canned pet food.”
