The FDA is up to more shenanigans with their proposals for implementing the
Food Safety Modernization Act (a/k/a Destroy Local Ag Act).

Despite the Tester Hagan amendment mandating exemption of small farms and
food processors, the FDA is moving to apply the exemption for processors to
only those who sell "at the farm gate".  Thus opening the doors for severe
regulations of sellers of prepared and processed foods at farmers markets,
stores, etc.

Today is apparently the last date for comments, they close at midnight.

All the comment details are at


Please take a moment and send the FDA a message.
