From what I have seen, from across the pond, all the recent food scares have involved big agribusinesses, NOT small producers and farmers market sales
of produce. Since man cultivated his own crops people have been buying or bartering that produce and it has been shared by the communities. To bring
in legislation like this that favours, once again, the agribusiness mega-corporations is disgusting and threatens the safe food supply of more than
just the continental USA. Before long I expect we'll see the EU trying to introduce similar laws.
Who are they protecting here? Certainly not the consumers, who surely have a right to grow food on their own land and even smallholders should have a
right to sell what they grow, and grow it how they like without the interference of the government and it's lawyers.
This is indeed a dangerous move they are making but hopefully brings a step closer their downfall.
