132 undersigned organizations representing consumers, fishermen, farmers and ranchers, local food producers, and co-ops signed onto a letter to the United States Senate expressing concern about food safety legislation, S.510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, and its potential for unnecessarily burdening and handicapping small-scale, local food producers. The groups urged the Senate to support the amendment co-sponsored by Senators Tester and Hagan to ensure that small-scale direct-marketing farms and food producers are protected from unnecessary and overly burdensome federal regulations.
