|H.R. 2749 The Food Safety Enhancement Act|
|Our friends at the Organic Consumers Association have sent out this important Action Alert.
|From the Western Organization of Resource Councils:
The House of Representatives is working on H.R. 2749, the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009. It’s an attempt to address the worst problems in U.S. agriculture, but as it stands the bill threatens to undermine the best things in U.S. agriculture – small farmers producing for local markets.
H.R. 2749 needs to draw a clear line between small local processors and direct market growers selling locally and the industrial, multi-sourced food supply chains where food borne pathogens have appeared and created problems.
Please contact your Representative today by clicking the Take Action Button above.
