S.510 “The FDA has plenty of authority to protect the anonymous food supply already. But they don’t. Instead, they put small entities out of business through Hazard Analasis & Critical Control Points (HACCP), also to be expanded in this bill, and heavier regulations that are not helpful to smaller economies of scale. The FDA inspects less than 1% of imported produce, has performed inspections on less than 25% of processing failties that they are authorized to inspect (in a five year period) and they ALREADY have authority over live food animals on the farm. The USDA authority is over animal disease.”

As Dennis Fink concludes: “To give them back that power takes away existing local control and places it in the hands of the federal government. I, for one, am against that.”

James L. Oberstar (D-Minn.) the house bill for this Lame Duck S.787
