S. 510: 12 Reasons Why The Food Safety Bill From Hell Could Be Very Dangerous For The U.S. Economy

As you read this, there is a bill before the U.S. Senate that has the potential to change the U.S. food industry more than any other law ever passed by the U.S. Congress. In the name of "food safety", the U.S. government would be given an iron grip over the production, transportation and sale of all food in the United States. Hordes of small food producers and organic farmers could potentially be put out of business.  If this bill becomes law, the freedom to grow what you want, eat what you want and to share food from your gardens with your neighbors could be greatly curtailed.  It would give the FDA unprecedented discretion to regulate U.S. food production.  A version of this bill was already passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last summer, and now S. 510, also know as the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, is in front of the U.S. Senate and it is expected to pass easily.

Because of how vaguely it is written and because of how much discretion it gives to the FDA, it is potentially a very, very dangerous law.

So who is actually in favor of it?

Well, big food corporations and big agriculture are actually very much in favor of this bill.

Why?

Is it because they are so concerned about food safety?

No.

In fact, virtually every major case of food contamination in recent U.S. history has come from large-scale industrial agriculture or large-scale industrial food production.

The real reason why they are backing S. 510 is because it will devastate their primary competition - small food producers and organic farmers.

In recent years, the demand for organic food has skyrocketed as the American people have learned the truth about how our food is actually made.  Big agriculture and the giant food producers are losing profits as Americans increasingly vote with their wallets.

So now the food giants are using "food safety" as a way to get market share back.  It is an open secret that many of those involved in drafting this bill and in pushing it through Congress have ties to food industry giants.

Thousands of small food producers and organic farmers will have their very existence threatened by this bill.  It imposes a bureaucratic nightmare on all food producers that the big corporations will be able to handle easily but that will cripple much smaller operations.

Already, many farmers can see the writing on the wall.  One small farmer recently described the mood among her fellow small farmers to the Wall Street Journal....

"I know people who have been small farmers for 25 to 30 years who are looking to get out of the business because food safety is becoming so alarmist."

But the bureaucratic nightmare is just the tip of the iceberg.  To get an idea of just how dangerous S. 510 could potentially be to the already staggering U.S. economy, just check out the following quote from one opponent of this bill....

"If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God."

-Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistle blower

It would be hard to understate how dangerous this bill potentially could be.  This bill gives the FDA the ability to exercise a ton of discretion.  The FDA could end up exercising that discretion in a very reasonable way, or they could use it to shut down small food producers left and right.

When it comes to S. 510, the question that you need to ask yourself is this....

Do you trust the FDA?

If not, then there are some very real reasons for you to be concerned.

The following are 12 reasons why S. 510 could be absolutely disastrous for small food producers and for the U.S. economy.... 

#1 All food production facilities in the United States will be required to register with the U.S. government.   No food will be allowed to be grown, distributed or sold outside this bureaucratic framework unless the FDA allows it.

#2 Any food that is distributed or sold outside of U.S. government control will be considered illegal smuggling.

#3 The FDA will hire an army of new inspectors to enforce all of the new provisions in the bill.

#4 The FDA will be mandated to conduct much more frequent inspections of food processing facilities.   

#5 The fees and paperwork requirements will be ruinously expensive for small food producers and organic farms.

#6 S. 510 would place all U.S. food and all U.S. farms under the Department of Homeland Security in the event of a major "contamination" or an "emergency".  What exactly would constitute a "contamination" or an "emergency" is anyone's guess.

#7 S. 510 mandates that the FDA facilitate harmonization of American food laws with Codex Alimentarius.

#8 S. 510 imposes an annual registration fee on any facility that holds, processes, or manufactures food.  It also includes draconian fines for paperwork infractions of up to $500,000 for a single offense.  Just one penalty like that would drive a small food producer out of business.

#9 S. 510 would give the FDA tremendous discretion to regulate how crops are grown and how food is produced in the United States.  Basically, small farmers and organic farmers will now be forced to farm exactly how the federal government tells them to.  It is feared that the U.S. government would soon declare that many organic farming methods are "unsafe" and would outlaw them.  In addition, there is the very real possibility that at some point the U.S. government could decide that the only "safe" seed for a particular crop is genetically modified seed and would require all farmers to use it.

#10 S. 510 will give the FDA the power to impose a quarantine on a specific geographic area.  Basically the FDA would have the power to stop the movement of all food in an area where a "contamination" has been identified.  This would be very close to being able to declare martial law.

#11 S. 510 will give the FDA the power to conduct warrantless searches of the business records of small food producers and organic farmers, even if there has been no evidence at all that a law has been broken. 

#12 Opponents of S. 510 believe that it would eliminate the right to clean and store seed.  Therefore, control of the U.S. seed supply would be further centralized in the hands of Monsanto and other multinational corporations.

As mentioned above, this bill gives the FDA a ton of discretion.  It is written very broadly and very vaguely.  It opens the door for all kinds of abuses, but that doesn't mean that the FDA will behave unreasonably.

So should we trust the FDA?

Is there a viable future for small food producers and organic farmers in America?

Or is the handwriting already on the wall? 

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."

-Thomas Jefferson

  • Lennie Pike

    I think the big corporations should have their agents in Congress pass a law that requires which ever Americans they choose to be their slaves and if any American refuses then that American will be required to pull out his own pistol and put a bullet through his own head.

    Would anyone object or disobey?

    I don’t think anyone would.

  • Mike

    You neglected to include this portion of the WSJ article:

    “Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D., Conn.), a longtime advocate of tougher food-safety laws, said the legislation already addresses smaller producers’ concerns. For instance, farms selling products directly to consumers from a fruit stand or farmers market would be exempt from some fees and requirements.

    “We’ve made all kinds of accommodations to small farmers so that they are not put at risk,” she said.”

    As someone who has read the bill, let me address your points.

    1. No facility not already registered will be required to register. There will be no fees imposed.

    2. This is a ridiculous idea. Conspiracy theory and not based on anything within the bill.

    3. The increase in FDA inspectors will allow the FDA to conduct regular inspections of high-risk facilities that are what you might consider “big business”. Additionally, more FDA inspectors are needed to fulfill this bills direction to inspect foreign facilities that export to the US.

    4. Once again, food processing facilities of the highest risk factor will garner the more frequent inspections. All facilities already registered will be inspected regularly.

    5. The FDA has the power to exempt small, low-risk facilities under this bill. The fees and paperwork are explicitly required to be responsive to the size of the business and flexible so that small businesses are not burdened. It is written in S. 510.

    6. The DHS would only get involved if necessary. Since DHS was created, it has had authority and/or involvement in many major departments within the executive branch. This bill is nothing new in that respect.

    7. It does not mandate harmonization. It requests that FDA receive comment and advice as to whether or not it should harmonize.

    8. Once again, no registration fees are included in S. 510. Nor is there any mention of the level of any fines.

    9. S. 510 calls for the establishment of “minimum safety standards”. These standards cannot conflict with the standards of the National Organic Program. Since organic standards disallow GM seed, it is extended that FDA’s standards must not include GM seed.

    10. In the event of a major emergency, the FDA, USDA, and DHS will work with the public to coordinate a collective response.

    11. The FDA will have access to paperwork involving production safety procedures and purchase and sale records. This will assist FDA in tracing the source of an outbreak and making sure contaminated products don’t continue to pose a threat.

    12. Opponents to S. 510 are wrong. It does not deal with the cleaning of seeds.

  • Lennie Pike

    At this point it’s really not that far fetched anymore to believe that another reason for fascist control over food might actually be to intentionally place harmful substances and/or substances in food that control the behavior of the population in food – part of the master plan of the NWO. Of course they will require organic and non-genetically engineered food for themselves.

    Of course this has already been happening for the profit motive as it relates to producing larger sized food faster and cheaper. There must be a lot of profit and other desirable outcomes for them by creating a docile and submissive or mostly dead world population so why wouldn’t they. It has already been proven that this is their M.O. They DON’T CARE!!!! about you.

    Of course though they will have access to organically grown and non genetically engineered food for themselves.

    Keep just sitting there and taking it America!!!!!!!

  • Randy

    As a former employee of DHS, and a small dairy farmer now, I can tell you that DHS is so jacked up that they can’t find their butts with both their hands. Mike is right, small farmer concerns have been addressed. I really am not all that concerned about this. Besides, the State of Virginia would stand up to this if it threatened Commonwealth farmers. As to the FDA and their powers, most farmers would shoot them before letting them into their home offices. I really don’t think this is much to worry about. TnAndy is also right, door to door gun grabbing? Lets not for get that there are over 100 million guns in this country and just as many gun owners. All of DoD and DoJ and DHS are not large enough to make this happen. Besides, I worked with several FBI agents who told me they would never surrender their personal firearms. A gun or garden grab would precipitate a revolt that would end the Obama Administration, and it would fatten the hogs as well!

  • Brian

    Randy,
    Things like this aren’t done that way. If they grab one garden or one gun at a time, who is going to notice? How many folks have their property taken under “imminent domain” every day? How many privately held dealerships were closed without reasons in the auto debacle? Until they come to your door, or your business, apparently YOU will not notice.

    The answer: Jesus Christ!!! This time was already foretold in the Bible, this sick little evil plan was already given to us as a WARNING.

    Source: Center for Responsive Politics based on data released from the FEC.

    Michael Taylor of Monsanto put recombinant bovine growth hormone onto the market. Since it has been in the marketplace, it has been linked to mastitis in cows –pus has been the milk. Cows treated with antibiotics made by a partner of Monsanto, and those antibiotics are in the milk. Cows became lame due to rBGH. Human males ingesting rBGH in dairy products had a higher rate of prostate cancer compared with their counterparts who did not ingest rBGH tainted milk; women had a higher rate of breast cancer; and both sexes had a higher rate of colon cancer because of the IGF-1 factor than went into the humans ingesting the genetically modified growth hormone. IGF-1 stands for Insulin Growth Factor-1 and has been found to cause cancers in humans.

    It’s interesting that the genetically modified salmon which the FDA is planning to put onto the market also contains that IGF-1 factor. Yet, no scientific studies based on public health are being required of the company putting the GM fish into the U.S. marketplace. Plus, what happens if the fish escape into the wild and compete for the food that the wild salmon eat? Will the genetically engineered fish then eat the wild salmon? What if several health damage is attributed to the GE salmon? The FDA had trouble finding the source for salmonella in eggs, and E-Coli in meat from the factory farmers for a recall. How would they go about recalling the GE salmon from the wild? How will they recall the soy, corn, canola, cotton of which 85-90% is genetically modified either to be a pesticide as in GE cotton and corn made by Monsanto; or the GE soy, canola, sugar beets (widespread in processed foods including ice cream and candy) from the marketplace, when Monsanto’s DNA contaminates other crops due to pollination and wind which carries the DNA across state lines? Currently, GE papaya from Monsanto consumes 50% of the US marketplace. Other GM crops in our food supply include but are not limited to crookneck squash and zucchini. More are coming online daily. Yet, there is no health data, no right to know via mandatory labeling, and no regulation on these GMO crops (God Move Over), which have been created in a laboratory and are not natural.

    The Food Safety and Modernization Act does not address the health damage that may occur from these crops which are fed to animals (corn and soy) that people eat. Corn mutates like a cancer in our cells and soy has been found to cause lesions in test animals and livestock. Humans are also at risk because we belong to the animal kingdom, as well. The studies are from Europe. None has been done in the USA. Perhaps, this is because of the vast monies given to Congress, including the sponsor and co-sponsors of this fake Food Safety and Modernization Act.

    A real food safety bill would include health safety studies which are peer reviewed on Genetically Modified crops!

  • Susan

    I forgot to add that Michael Taylor of Monsanto is now Food Safety Czar at the US FDA compliments of the Obama-Monsanto-biotech-Biden Administration!

  • Susan

    Genetically modified “foods” have been in the marketplace in the USA since January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration. “Searle re-applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener, and Reagan’s new FDA commissioner, Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision.
    It soon became clear that the panel would uphold the ban by a 3-2 decision, but Hull then installed a sixth member on the commission, and the vote became deadlocked. He then personally broke the tie in aspartame’s favor. Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle.” http://www.rense.com/general33/legal.htm

    Aspartame has repeatedly had very serious consequences to people consuming this Genetically Engineered product. Yet, it remains on the market and is now widespread in pharmaceuticals and all sweeteners, artificial and natural. The accumulating health data has been ignored at the FDA, perhaps because Monsanto’s Michael Taylor has regularly gone through the revolving doors from Monsanto to the USDA and the FDA and back again.

    Taylor is no longer just a lobbyist, he is now a vice president of Monsanto and is the new FDA Food Safety Czar.

    The Food Safety Bill could be very dangerous to non-toxic farming and especially the health of all life on the planet because GMO’s leave the farm on the wind and via pollinators moving from farm to garden and carrying their patented DNA. Then, Monsanto’s goons come along and put the innocent farmer who did not want the potentially toxic DNA in the first place, out of business. This gives U.S. consumers no right to choose what food they consume and it may adversely effect the youngest beings on the planet, the unborn fetus, as well as the older ones, the elderly.

    Our economy will go on, more people will become sterile, more spontaneous abortions will occur from unregulated agricultural practices using GMO’s and herbicide tolerant crops, more people and animals will suffer from lesions in their gut and various organs based on studies out of Europe. And, more people will die at a younger and younger age. The economy will go on, but Big Brother –will remain in control of our lives and the way farmers farm.

    We will NOT be healthier because of this legislation.

    There is a British company that moves, so far, British families, to Russia to farm. They cover all expenses, the farmer gets a land lease for 49 years, because he’s not a citizen and you must be a citizen to own agricultural land. Of course by 49 years he will be or his kids born in Russia will be and the land is there’s. In return they sell all their crops to the company which then sells in mass on commodity markets.

    Average farm is 3,000 acres of black earth.

    @Susan: Genetically engineered? Aspartame was discovered by a chemist, not a geneticist.

    Repeatedly had very serious consequences? In 1994 the EU approved Aspartame’s use. It reaffirmed it in 2002 and again in 2006, saying that previously identified intake levels did not pose a health risk. (http://www.efsa.europa.eu/EFSA/efsa_locale-1178620753812_1178620765743.htm) Unless you have PKU, or you ingest A LOT of Aspartame, you have nothing to be concerned about.

    There are plenty of things to be concerned about whenever the government tries to increase it’s level of control. You don’t need to make stuff up to try and help your position…

    And you’re developmentally disabled.

    Susan’s on the money for a lot of things. You’d be wise to wake up and listen.

    What continues to surprise me is how the American farmer has not banded together and filed group lawsuit against Monsanto for (criminal) tresspass and destruction of personal property. If it can be clearly asserted by Monsanto that I have agri-stock on my land which includes round-up resistant plants, yet no record exists of my having bought THEIR seed, then they want to press charges of theft. I turn that around and charge “TRESSPASSING.” I never bought the seed, to which they agree…then how is it on my land ? If Monsanto wants to claim wind borne pollination as an act of God, per the insurance companies language, then I will counter, and claim the same….to wit, you cannot press charges against farmers for naturally occuring events (wind/pollination) over which they have no control. Bottom line: *&%#@!* Monsanto !!!!

    Look at the bigger picture. This is more than just protecting the big food corporations, although obviously that’s a “perk.” It’s also about ensuring a lack of access to healthy food, so as to continue to create an unhealthy population. Diabetes and obesity will continue to rise, and even those who try to eat right will find it increasingly hard, as healthy food becomes harder to find and degraded anyway. The corporations will continue to push us all into cube-farms. Meanwhile, the absurdity of the life we are pushed to live by these institutions will continue to push people to dull the pain with medications which further destroy their health. The increasingly sickened population will turn to their health care plan…but will find no relief. The Obamacare program will ensure that emergency treatment is scarce, and reserved for the favored classes, and ongoing/preventative care continues to be a joke, controlled as the industry is by the insurance companies and drug companies. The endgame? The government never has to admit it cannot deliver on SS and similar payments, since people will die in large numbers at younger ages. The market will then be blamed for the deaths.

    Sorry but those of you who think this bill is harmless are wrong at best! I am a farmer,have been for over 40 years,I raise most of what I eat and I have been ready for anything for years,I am also a long time activist on small farm and liberty minded issues.
    Let me tell you this is a mess, NAIS (animal ID) is an issue I and others fought for years we screamed at them(USDA,monsanto,NIAA and others) for years,went to meetings held to find out what we farmers thought and told them..only to be told to come to another meeting so that they could ask us what we thought…they arnt listening! Now SB510 will pass an animal ID and a plant ID program so all the dumb-dumbs who wont wash their hands after crapping and letting the freaking cat up on the table can feel safe about a the govt cracking down on farmers using manure on the land,theyll still get sick and die because it isnt the farmers its their own dumbness that got them!As well as the fact that the rest of the disease problem has come from agribiz corporations who violate all of natures and Gods laws regarding farming and then act suprised when people get sick…morons.
    I have read the bill, people who will admit to being lawyers have read the bill.I have talked to many people who understand the law and they all tell me this is a deep dark hole where the bottom aint visible,you trust the govicorp?! Are you insane?…of course you are but those of us who live this way are not and this will become whatever a clueless bureauacrat wants it to be,whatever the tyrant wants it to be… the constitution be damned…sorry some things just aint right and the violations this govt is up to are calling for a revolution of one kind or another,we cant go any farther down this road to hell and not smell like brimstone! Time for Americans to get real…get off their lazy butts and fight for the future…for freedom,doing whatever it takes to throw these commies out of our govt from top to bottom and soon,otherwise a peaceful revolution may not be an option! I love liberty, I love free markets,sadly we havent had either here in America in a good while, time to fix this wagon before they drive it off a cliff and then blame us!

    Our Healthcare system begins with the quality of our environment and
    food source. The further away we get from the true source of our own
    nature the more toxic and ill this Nation and World will continue to become. This “Food Safety” Bill is not sustainable in any way.
    We as a Nation need to take serious action and simplify our eating
    and return to understand why and what we eat, the TV and Media we
    expose ourselves to. We need to create wholesome communities
    which include growing our own foods just like our Grandparents
    had their Victory Gardens. This Bill is Wrong!!! on all levels.
