    I like safe, clean, warm puppies, too, but I'm not stupid enough to think the government can give me those.

    It takes away imported foods from countries that can't comply.

    This will crush many small countries that rely on exports, b/c not every place on the planet has access to computers.

    Seems cruel, but what else would you expect from something backed by Soros.

    We have the best and safest food on the planet, it's getting expensive, more expensive, and this will put many foods out of the working poor reach.

    But it's good to see we are getting double penetrated by the R's and D's.

    sounds like 'self-regulation'

    does it give the FDA the authority to shut down factories with repeated outbreaks?


    sounds like hollow legislation

    So medium sized groves that are harvested by illegals and irrigated with their sewer water shouldn't be inspected for safety in the same manner as larger growers?
    Anyone selling produce for public consumption should be subjected to stricy inspection standards.
    Being in the restaurant industry for almost 30 years it would be really nice if, when I ran out of lettuce, I could run across the street to a produce stand and buy some from them rather than having to order from "an approved food source" at a much higher price.
    How comfortable are you going to a restaurant and not being sure of the quality of produce they're using??
    How can you be sure that proper temperatures are kept or proper rotation. What chemicals are on it? etc....

    We already have the best system in the world.

    How many cases of what you mentioned happened in the last year that the FDA could have stopped?

    Where are those groves right now, doofus?

    You could turn one in right now if you knew about it.

    You would not need this law.

    Go find someone else to justify you raising the prices of your already over priced food, ass hole.

    Golly gee whiz, you are stuck on stupid in every category, Revere.

    The legislation passes with strong bi-partisan support. Government worked as it should.

    No way of knowing until there is actually an outbreak.
    That's the point, dumbass.
