    [​IMG] Wonderful.

    Another commercial screwup that the government will use to pin more regulations on the small guys.

    "But beef is a breeding ground for e.coli and in 2009 at least 2 deaths were recorded being caused by infected beef. There for stricter laws are in order for everyone, especially the small time farmer" ((We'll just leave the little fact that to contaminate that much beef, it was probably due to dirty equipment in a large scale commercial plant, because a backyard producer would not produce 500,000 lbs of contaminated meat.))

    Oh yeah, and we fear that us chicken keepers are causing issues! Its the dang FDA who's letting all these tainted products out! I'm afraid of getting sick or dying from spinach and peanut butter more so now, then my parents ever had to deal with it!

    I think its time to fulling REMOVE the FDA and start a whole new branch that will actually do good for the consumer rather then keep allowing this to happen! Let the small farmer have a chance already!!!
