(This Action Alert is over.)
The November public comment deadline on the FDA’s proposed food safety rules is fast approaching. The proposed rules threaten to ensnare many of the country’s safest farmers in a misdirected attempt to rein in abuses that are mostly emanating from industrial-scale factory farms and giant agribusiness food processing facilities.
If you haven’t already, please download, sign and mail back to us the linked proxy-letter today! And please share this message with your friends via email, Facebook, Twitter and whatever other options you use.
While better food safety oversight, of factory farms and giant agribusinesses is needed, it appears that regulators and corporate lobbyists are using these food safety proposals to simultaneously crush the organic and local farming movements. You can help protect and defend those farmers producing local, fresh, safe and nutritionally superior food.
Cornucopia will hand-deliver the thousands of proxies we have already collected directly to the FDA. But time is growing short. If you want additional background information, please visit our food safety page.
It is critical for the good food community to come together right now. We know you enjoy the bounty of nutritious, healthful food produced by our nation’s best farmers. Please help protect family-scale farmers and maintain this alternative in the marketplace. It is worth fighting for.
