TRIBAL GROWERS BRACE FOR NEW FOOD SAFETY RULES
New federal food safety rules are looming across the country. They’re aimed at ensuring consumers aren’t harmed by contaminated produce, but many growers say the rules are stepping on tribal sovereignty. In addition, opponents say the provisions in the law are confusing and onerous. President Barack Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in 2011. Its implementation is being phased in, with some larger tribal businesses having to start compliance next year. We’ll talk about how tribal produce operations will be affected and what some groups are doing to help growers understand and comply with the new law.
