H.R. 875 - S. 425

Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (Introduced in House)

Text of S.425 as Introduced in Senate

There is a lot of fear projected, regarding these bills. Below are a few YouTube videos on the topic.

The bill just seems to make things that are already illegal, extra double illegal. It looks like feel-good legislation.

I don't see anything in it that eliminates organic farming. It looks like this is just hoax being perpetrated to generate a bit of hype.

On another point, I believe that restrictions on food processing and production is too stringent. This bills would reinforce these rules.

Read the bills yourself. Let me know if you see something in them I missed. I'm not so much worried that it would give enforcement authorities too much latitude. They already have a lot of latitude in enforcement and I don't see this as changing that. What I'm concerned about are the claims that these bills would make organic farming illegal. I don't see that.
