This is a blatant bill, being fast tracked, that is about control of our food supply not food safety. Until the corporate influence of the Argo industry is removed from all these bills none should be passed. These bills are about promoting industrial farming and destroying small farms and ranches as well as local and organic farming. They are about controlling the people by controlling our food supply. They are full of unconstitutional actions and infringements on our basic freedoms: ALARMING PROVISIONS:
1)* Power to Quarantine a Geographic Area; the FDA can also Halt All Movement of All Food in a geographic area.
2) * Random Warrantless Searches of Business Records.
3) * Regulation of How Crops Are Raised and Harvested.
4) * Establishing a Tracing System for Food.
5) * Severe Criminal and Civil Penalties.
6) * Annual Registration Fee of $500.

delio302003; that is right , they don’t want you to grow your own food , that is why they are raiding the Amish . Most that lived around here have moved to different areas . They want total control.

Wow. I really hate to believe all the things you hear about the way this country is headed. You read this and its hard to deny. Hopefully this gets quickly defeated. If not, its up to the public to absolutely firestorm our congressman to vote against it.

The FDA needs to be abolished. They have done more bad then good. This will destroy farming and put in factory farming. There is nothing like buying low quality meat, produce and dairy and cheap prices…Waxman needs to get out of Politics and live on an island where he can regulate the way the birds Sh*t so he wont have any global warming. What a crock.

Warrantless searches of business records??? King Waxman, His Royal Highness Dingell and every other member of congress that supports this bill needs to read the U.S. Constitution. Amendment IV says, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” Legislation like this makes America a banana republic.

This bill is dreadfully incomplete. I’m seeing the phrase “may contain” & “may set forth” an extraordinary number of times. This bill is being left for the bureaucrats at the FDA to complete after it is passed into law.

Does this mean that I can’t grow my food without government interference? Are they kidding? I don’t want the GMO stuff. It could be poison for all I know.
