    ITS TIME TO SHOW OUR STRENGTH!

    DEFEAT BOTH: S510 (The Food Safety Bill), and S3767, (The Food Safety Accountability Act). Act now, because there is a motion pending to move S510 forward after session reconvenes November 12th.

    Enter Your Zip Code Below and Write your Senator and Congresspersons!!

    S510 - greatly expands FDA authority introducing huge and burdensome regulations on all persons who manufacture, process, pack, distribute, receive, hold or import food in the U.S. S510s burdensome regulations could virtually eliminate competition in the food market-place, especially imperiling small food producers, and only allow for the existence of large food producers.


    S3767 - puts new and criminal enforcement provisions into FDA law, mandating that if a person knowingly violates specific food laws with conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury, they will be fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned for not more than 10 years, or both.

    MORE police power over small business is NOT THE ANSWER to making the American food supply safe. WE NEED TO ADDRESS THE REAL PROBLEM of the dangerous consolidation of the food supply in order to keep Americans SAFE!


    S510 - will mandate Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Assessment Controls for all facilities, and a farm will be considered a facility if it sells anything processed like sun-dried tomatoes, jams from their own fruits, or fermented vegetables! (See Fall 2010 Wise Traditions article Chameleon Politics by Judith McGeaery, Esq.)

    S510 - gives the FDA power to set safety standards which will govern how farmers can grow and harvest their crops! This gives FDA expansive rulemaking capability over the way food is produced and creates a great compliance burden for small farmers. Even the exempted certified organic farmers could find additional standards forced upon them.

    The USDA and the FDA already have expansive food regulating powers, including powers given to them by the 2002 Bioterrorism Act which mandates registration of all food facilities in the United States and foreign importers that are not specifically exempted, and FDA authority to investigate and enforce.

    Take Action NOW! Demand that Senators and Congressman stop these bills and go to the real source of dangers in the Food Supply! Stop caged animals in overcrowded filthy environments, force-fed with genetically modified grains, loaded with antibiotics, hormones and other medications, creating dangerous products for American consumption, contaminating our water supply, and monopolizing the food markets with industrialized products.

    If the bill moves forward and is not stopped, SUPPORT THE TESTER-HAGEN AMENDMENT. The very fact that the Tester-Hagen Amendment is not on the final bill tells us the whole truth. Click here to read the Tester-Hagen Amendment. The Tester Hagen amendment exempts producers who gross under $500,000 and who sell more than half of their products to consumers (with no restriction on location) or to restaurants or retailers who are either in-state or within 400 miles.
