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.

Please take a moment and send the FDA a message.
