Proposed Law Might Be Threat to Local Food Markets

We don't know many of the details yet, but a bill working its way through Congress is thought by many to be a severe threat to local food artisans, CSAs (community supported agriculture) and farmers markets.

The bill does little-to-nothing to stop the sort of industrial widespread food-borne illnesses that have made the news lately (peanuts, e-coli in meat and produce, etc). But it gives the USDA power to alter our little local food artisans in a way that will put some of them out of business.
