FDA Food Safety Modernization Act: Bill makes... | Gather: "Also known as the 'FDA Food Safety Modernization Act' the bill introduces more thorough inspections, new regulations and higher food safety standards to current law.
Expecting exaggerated claims of negative consequences, it was surprising to see things in the bill which support the claims of bureaucratic land-mines for farmers and 'ordinary folks.' Big Brother is watching you.
Indeed as the emails claimed, if a person grows food and tried to sell it at the local farmers market, they will have to buy a license and have approval and/or inspections of their farm. Additionally a registration form will be sent to the Secretary of Health and Human Services."
