S.510 Food Safety. The government will screw this up too.

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Last we the U.S. Senate invoked cloture (what the hell is that and why not just say closure) to move forward with debate on S. 510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act.  During the debate on the bill, the Senate will consider a provision in the bill that would exempt certain segments of the food industry including food facilities and farm operations from requirements for basic food safety standards.

Guess what, they are going to exempt the places that suffer the most problems. Does anyone remember the recent egg issues? That was an Egg Farm People.

Now it’s time for the lobbyists to enter, the discussion to continue and updates to be offered in language we don’t understand in volumes we would not be able to read in this lifetime.

With the above said, I’m off to have some Turkey. Buy the way what came first the Turkey or the egg?

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
