The FDA has released
several revised rules pertaining to the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act
(FSMA). Some of the rules that were proposed initially brought a deafening
outcry from small farmers, prominent members of Congress, consumers, and even
big business. On September 19, the FDA released several revised rules.
The public has an additional seventy-five days to comment.
Please tell the FDA that their revisions are heading in the
right direction, but they don’t go nearly far enough. Explain why adhering to
true organic standards is important for farmers and consumers alike.
Please personalize and add your own comments if you have time!
Dear [Decision Maker],
