If you eat food – that’s all of us! – you should be concerned about the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s new Food Safety laws, which unfairly target local food efforts, undermine sustainable and organic practices, and will reduce access to fresh, local food in your community.

The FDA is implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) which was passed by Congress in 2010.

They are issuing five rules, two of which are of great concern to U.S. farmers: the Produce Rule and the Preventive Controls Rule.

Join us in weighing in with FDA today.
