Posted on September 24, 2010


S.501 and S.3767
These bills could be part of a far reaching crack down on small local farmers (and you) being able to grow your own organic food.
SIGN Petition:

This bill could potentially facilitate Codex Alimentarius http://www.codexalimentarius.net/web/index_en.jsp ) involving a crack down on growing your own food and access to health supplements. Please read this and write your Representatives it’s important we get the word out.

With at least one Senator (Dr. Tom Coburn, OK) refusing to agree that S.510, a highly controversial bill, should be considered by the parliamentary maneauver of “unanimous consent” as a “noncontroversial bill”, it apprears S.510 may be permanently stalled. But now  S.3767 has been introduced.

The current session of Congress is not over yet. S.3767 was introduced just a few days ago, in an unusual move this late in the session. This is another fake “food safety” bill, calling for a major change in US criminal law, punishing by up to ten years in jail anyone who “knowingly” introduces “misbranded” foods into interstate commerce. While in the past, unscrupulous businesses could be punished for intentionally selling adulterated foods, extending the criminal law this far is unprecedented. The Senate Judiciary Committee seems to understand this, and the Amendment added on 09.23.10 puts some small limits on bureaucratic “discretion.”

If Congress is going to act on “food safety” this year, it ought to be to protect our Food Freedom.

We need to have this amendment in these bills
—The Food Freedom Amendment
