New ‘safety plan’ would control what you eat

Critics say a bill pending in the U.S. Senate would do for Americans’ food supply what “Obamacare” is doing to the nation’s supply of health-care resources. And it’s generating a surge of alarm among small-farm operators and natural food advocates.

“S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the U.S.,” writes Steve Green on the Food Freedom blog. “It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.”

The plan is sponsored by U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., who explains the legislation “is a critical step toward equipping the FDA with the authorities and funding it needs to regulate what is now a global marketplace for food, drugs, devices, and cosmetics.”

Now it’s statism on our plate! Mark Levin’s manifesto – ‘Liberty and Tyranny’ – provides the antidote to its growing stranglehold

His website explains, “The legislation requires foreign and domestic food facilities to have safety plans in place to prevent food hazards before they occur, increases the frequency of inspections. Additionally, it provides strong, flexible enforcement tools, including mandatory recall. Most importantly, this bill generates the resources to support FDA food safety activities.”

The proposal, which was cleared by the U.S. House last year but has been languishing in the Senate because of a full calendar of projects, creates a long list of new requirements for food-producing entities to meet the demands of the Secretary of Agriculture. It is expected to be the subject of discussion in coming days.

  1. Don’t know about S510, but most people in the rest of the industrialized world are baffled by statements like “bill pending in the U.S. Senate would do for Americans’ food supply what “Obamacare” is doing to the nation’s supply of health-care resources.” Because the rest of us already have universal health coverage (which isn’t what you folks have now, even with “Obamacare”), and we would fight tooth and nail to keep it. And a new study shows that Canadians, for example, are healthier and live longer than our American “cousins”, in large part due to our universal health coverage.

    So that comparison makes me think s510 may not be such a bad thing.

  2. If you want to know how bad S.510 is and the government’s plans for controlling our food supply, check out the interview I did with food activist Doreen Hannes:

    There’s no reason for giving the FDA more authority and money when they don’t even do the job they’re already paid to do.
