Please contact your US Senators and tell them to vote “NO” on cloture for H.R. 3082 and oppose the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. This bill will grant the FDA way too much power. I want to be able to feed my family raw milk fresh from the farm. Raw dairy is a threat to big dairy corporations. It is not a food-safety issue. I do not trust the FDA. They do not do a good job of protecting our food and drug supply as it is and I doubt giving them more power will make us safer. It will just increase their power to bully small farmers. More regulation is not the answer to the food safety issues. Individual consumer responsibility is.
For more information, watch this video from The Healthy Home Economist- it shows the FDA illegally confiscating raw milk. You can contact your senators by going to http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm.
Please act now!
