It is imperative that S. 3128, the “Uniformity for Food Act,” not be attached to an appropriations bill or other “must pass” legislation. On behalf of our millions of members and supporters, we urge you to support the safety of America’s food supply by opposing any effort to do so. S. 3128 overturns hundreds of state laws designed to protect the safety of the food we eat. With news on the outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 bacteria in spinach making headlines every day, Congress should be doing more to protect our food; this bill takes us in the wrong direction.
