The Pet Food Institute applauds the International Trade Commission's (ITC) recent unanimous decision (2/6) to reject tariffs on imported tin mill steel. This victory safeguards 40,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs and shields consumers from potential 30% price hikes on canned goods. The ITC's 0-4 vote, combined with the Department of Commerce's final duty determination in January, dismisses claims from the petitioner, Cleveland-Cliffs. This outcome ensures no duties on tin mill steel imports from Canada, China, Germany, and Korea, emphasizing the impracticality and economic harm of imposing such tariffs.
