Maine Rep. Chellie Pingree Letter to FDA on Raw Milk & Food Safety Czar Michael Taylor

On Nov. 18, Maine 1st Congressional District Chellie Pingree sent a letter to the Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration questioning their support of farm raids and the arrests of farmers. Rep. Pingree also questions whether Food Safety Czar Michael Taylor is an appropriate person for that position given his close ties to Monsanto. Read Jeffrey Smith’s article about Pres. Obama’s appointment of Taylor from 2009.

    This is a great letter and I hope this Congressperson will take it up when all of Congress meets. I know Ron Paul won’t oppose it because it means freedom.

    Probably,one of the only areas I can agree with the Maine congresswoman is when she goes to bat for the small local farmers.

    The FDA can’t keep arsenic out of apple juice from China, can’t keep salmonella from factory farm eggs, can’t keep ecoli from meat, vegetables, but by gosh they’re going to keep those Amish people from drinking raw milk!!!
