Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine Farmers Worried About Costs of New Food Safety Rules
Maine Public Broadcasting - 8/19/2013.
By A.J. Higgins - Representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration got more than an earful from Maine farmers today during a scheduled listening session in Augusta that focused on proposed rules for implementing the federal Food Safety Modernization Act. The act was passed by Congress two years ago, after a multi-state foodborne illness outbreak killed 30 people who had consumed tainted cantaloupes. Maine farmers say they support food safety rules, but object to some proposed policies they claim are unnecessary and potentially devastating to small growers.

By Jesse Newman and Kelsey Gee - A growing number of cattle arriving for slaughter at U.S. meatpacking plants have recently shown unusual signs of distress. Some walked stiffly, while others had trouble moving or simply lay down, their tongues hanging from their mouths. A few even sat down in strange positions, looking more like dogs than cows.
