Thank you for standing up for our Farmers & our Food - FDA will revise their Food Safety Regulations!
FDA had proposed 1600 pages of food safety regulations that would have had a HUGE impact on how fresh food and vegetables are grown. The proposal unfairly targeted small sustainable and organic farms. FDA heard your comments and will revise their regulations. THANK YOU for sending in your comments!

We all want safe food but we also need effective, scale and geographically appropriate rules. WSFFN, in collaboration with the National Sustainable Ag Coalition and Tilth Producers of WA, ran a grassroots campaign to help farmers understand the implications of the proposed regulations and encouraged them to submit comments. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. It worked. Stay tuned!
