National Grange Action Alert

Contact Your U.S. Senator to Urge Their Opposition 
to S.510 The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act
November 19, 2010
S.510 would prohibit farmers, food producers, food manufacturing facilities, and U.S.
 importers from retaining full control of their operations, products, product
 distribution, and business records by granting unprecedented authority to the 
 Secretaries of Health and Human Services, Agriculture, and Homeland Security. 
S. 510 is currently on the floor of the U.S. Senate and a vote on Final Passage 
 in the Senate is scheduled for November 29, 2010. Please Email your Senator
 today and let them know that Food Safety is important in rural America but
 this measure misses the target.
