“A formal rebuttal was filed regarding FDA’s claim of intrastate authority on the Federal Register, wherein the FDA sought to gain authority for rulemaking and thereby having commenced an action.   Having failed to respond, the FDA is therefore in default pursuant to Federal Rule 36 and has acquiesced by silence to the fact that it has no authority over    intrastate  trade.”

Honorable Senators;?

The proposed bill S 510 leaves much to be desired in its application from a judicial aspect.  It voids due process of law and equal protection under the law by allowing the administrator to have only a “reason to believe” to initiate a takings against a food producer in the form of a recall.  These same applications conspicuously do not apply to corporate producers.  In the case of the individual, it is a clear abrogation of rights perpetrated by a political body which seems intent on depriving the people of their rights. 

We find it difficult to believe that you, as Senators, would not be aware of the fact that you are intentionally abrogating the rights of individuals and are actively promoting the idea that prohibiting access to the courts and subjecting individuals to police state provisions, intended only to make it impossible for family and independent producers to remain in agriculture, would somehow be lawful. We find it disgusting that you would, using the jingosims of “food safety and food security”, hand the control of food production and supply over to corporations and international interests who are interested only in profits and how to control profits even if it destroys clean, safe food. 

These bills effectively convert the right to produce and share food that has been enjoyed since agrarian societies emerged, into a criminal activity. If what you are contemplating can only be accomplished by violating the rights of the people….whose interests are you really serving?  More
