Tell Me Again Why We Need the FDA

[High Praise! to The Real Revo]

The Food and Drug Administration has proposed new food safety rules that should significantly reduce the number or foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States.

Produce farmers will have to ensure the water and soil they use are clean, and that measures are taken to prevent animals from entering the fields. Basic hygiene practices – like hand-washing – will be taught to workers.

My mama taught me to wash my hands when I was 3.

The FDA’s been around since 1906, and they’re just now figuring out that hygiene is a good idea.

  1. Some work places have instructions on the wall beside the toilet teaching adults to use toilet paper and also telling them how not to wipe their butts. The children of those people are our countries future.

  2. No animals in the fields? They come all the way from Mexico and then you tell them can’t even go in the fields to take a dump? That’s so Racist!

    So I guess this is their admission that it’s been the filthy people doing the jobs welfare leeches don’t have to do that cause all these ‘illnesses’ all along, who’d have ever thought?

  3. which “animals” aren’t allowed in fields? good luck keeping out the rabbits, gophers, birds, and insects out!

    maybe the FDA will mandate that every farmer keep a security force with jets to maintain air and land supperiority while they grow crops. Maybe one of those laser grids that blasts anything that moves.

  4. This isn’t funny. California already has these regulations in place and the compliance costs are a nightmare. Making sure the workers have toilets and that they wash their hands isn’t the problem. It’s having to comply with keeping animals out of fields and trapping rodents. Building a fence strong enough to keep a wild hog out and tall enough to keep deer out is astronomical.
