HR 2749 - The Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 (Totalitarian Control of the Food Supply?)

Here is a good analysis of the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 (HR 2749), a bill that will likely have widespread implications on organic farming and natural foods.

HR 2749 - The Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009

Some of the more shocking provisions of the bill are the following:

* HR 2749 would give FDA the power to order a quarantine of a geographic area, including prohibiting or restricting the movement of food or of any vehicle being used or that has been used to transport or hold such food within the geographic area. [This - "that has been used to transport or hold such food" - would mean all cars that have ever brought groceries home so this means ALL TRANSPORTATION can be shut down under this. This is using food as a cover for martial law.] Under this provision, farmers markets and local food sources could be shut down, even if they are not the source of the contamination. The agency can halt all movement of all food in a geographic area. [This is also a means of total control over the population under the cover of food, and at any time.]

* HR 2749 would empower FDA to make random warrantless searches of the business records of small farmers and local food producers, without any evidence whatsoever that there has been a violation. [If these bills cover all who "hold food" then this allows for taking of records of anyone at any time on no basis at all.] Even farmers selling direct to consumers would have to provide the federal government with records on where they buy supplies, how they raise their crops, and a list of customers.
