Food Safety Legislation Update

Thank you to the many people who have called or emailed their Senators to urge them to amend or oppose S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act! The bill continues to be delayed and its future is unclear. But it still poses a threat to producers of local, nutrient-dense foods. ACTION TO TAKE If you have not yet called your Senators, please do so now! I cannot stress how important it is to make your voice heard on this issue. Urge them to support the Tester-Hagan amendments to exempt small-scale and direct marketing producers from the most burdensome provisions of the bill. Also encourage them to support the Senator Feinsteins proposal to ban Bisphenol A (BPA) from food containers because this endocrine-disrupting chemical has no place in our food. You can find your Senators contact information at or by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 or toll-free at 877-210-5351. IMPORTANT TO NOTE Several members have received responses from their Senator
