FDA Food Safety Rules

From organizer Holly:

Dakota Rural Action, along with a group of several organizations across the country including WORC, have been holding weekly conference calls to develop comments pertaining to the proposed Food Safety Rules. The comments will address several areas of concern in the rules, and also support the Tester-Hagan Amendment which made certain exemptions for small scale farmers. One recent development with the Food Safety Rules pertains to getting rid of the rules all together. Legislators in both the House and Senate have proposed either amendments to the Farm Bill or separate bills calling for the rules to be stopped. Many organizations have mixed emotions about stopping the rules. Dakota Rural Action plans on following these proposed rule changes as they develop.

Comments on the rules are being taken until September 16. Contact Holly, hollyt@dakotarural.org, if you want to help!
