The biggest overhaul of the U.S. food safety system in decades took a major step toward becoming law on Wednesday when House Democratic leaders FOLDED IT INTO A MUST-PASS BILL to fund the U.S. government.

The House passed the spending bill on Wednesday and the Senate was expected to consider it over the next few days as lawmakers push to complete their legislative session by the end of next week.

The food-safety legislation would give the government the power to order a food recall and would require foodmakers to write a plan to prevent in-plant contamination. Processing plants would be inspected more frequently. The bill covers processed foods, fruit and vegetables but not meat.

Both chambers of Congress have approved a food-safety overhaul but with some differences.

The bill was inspired by massive food recalls such as last summer's recall of half-a-billion table eggs due to salmonella. Since 2006, lettuce, peppers, peanuts and spinach have been involved in outbreaks of foodborne illness.

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act*, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower

It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.
