While a good start, the “serious” harm amendment (HEN10891) added to S 3767, the Food Safety Accountability Act, by the Judiciary Committee on September 23rd is not sufficient to protect food distributors from bureaucratic and criminal harassment.
Cherries cure most headaches, but the FDA censors that information.
No Jail for Selling Real Food! Oppose S.3767

Sometimes I don’t know if I’m living in the United States or the old Soviet Union. A new bill has been introduced in the Senate—S.3767, Food Safety Accountability Act of 2010. This bill makes it a crime, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, to “introduce misbranded food into interstate commerce.” The bill also appears to provide the same punishment for introducing “adulterated” food into interstate commerce.
These terms are so vague and so broad that they could cover almost anything. Government agencies already consider raw milk to be “adulterated.” Any supplement or food could be labeled as “misbranded.”
