A Whole New Department for Food Safety?

Bill could affect gardens, farmers markets, CSAs, and more.

Designating the Food Safety Administration (FSA) as sole regulator of food safety rather than the individual states, including granting FSA the power to implement and administer a “national system for regular unannounced inspection of food establishments” under its own terms. (“Food establishment” is so broadly defined in the bill that it can be anything from a meat packing plant to a backyard garden.)

As a “little guy”, I’ll let the rest of you “little guys” in on a secret…

Bigger government (more regulation) is not good for you. It only helps those big enough to  bankroll compliance with the regulations maintain their market share and take yours as well.
