Gov. Corbett & Sec. Greig Say "One size Fits All Rules Don't Always Work" For Food Safety

The FDA's Food Safety Modernization Act proposed rules are an important and monumental step in the safety of our food supply. 

However, far-reaching regulations can easily hamper a business’ ability to grow and succeed, and one-size-fits-all rules don't always work – that's why FDA is calling on producers, ag orgs and state departments of ag to look over the proposals with a fine-toothed comb.

 We all want consumer safety and producer profitability, and seek your input to ensure these rules benefit all Americans. 

Gov. Corbett and I are making sure PA's voice is heard loud and clear by hosting listening sessions with producers, agribusinesses and ag leaders. I invite you to the next session on March 17 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in room 309 at the PDA building in Harrisburg.

 It will cover the latest FSMA rule dealing with preventative controls for animal food. As the producers and animal food business owners who will be affected by these rules, we need to hear from you so that we can bring your concerns to the FDA’s attention. We’ll work to make sure the final rules implemented under FSMA are reasonable and take a common-sense approach to your operation.

More and more Pennsylvanian's are learning about the dangers of genetically engineered foods(GMO's). We do not want them grown here and we want them labeled in the grocery stores(at least). We need to keep our organic crops safe from GMO crop cross contamination.
