The deadline for commenting on the Food Safety and Modernization act is fast approaching (November 15th) and a lot of people on the interwebs telling you why you should care. One of the best, most cogent arguments is made by Brian Snyder on his blog Write to Farm. Here is the link. Brian is the executive director of the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) and the FoodRoutes Network, with my home and office in Centre County, PA. I am also current president of the Pennsylvania State Council of Farm Organizations, which represents the entire agricultural community in the state.
But the main reason for this post is to remind folks to send in their comments to the FDA about the proposed rule making. Do it!
