Why not exempt the small farmer and the small direct processor?
When HAACP rules got applied to meat processing. . the smaller rancher and farmer lost the ability to process meat locally. This seems that it could happen to the small farmer that makes jam and sells direct to the consumer (me)or the smaller produce farmer. I'm concerned that the local food movement could potentially be affected in the same way the local meat industry was affected.
Tracing foods from a farmers market is not the problem ..as a consumer I want to have the choice to buy local and direct . .this seems jeapordized by federal regulation.
