Family Farm Ordered to Destroy 50,000 Pounds of Cheese

If this doesn't infuriate you, it should.  Excerpts pasted below from the hartkeisonline blog

"As readers of this blog and those in the real food movement know, the FDA has a mission. They have blatantly stated that you have no right to consume foods of your choice, and the FDA Plant and Dairy head has a documented Howard Hughes like fear of raw dairy. They are happy to use their resources to “protect” you from consuming things that don’t make any one ill. They’ve reduced science to superstition. If they get more power through S.510, they will regulate the family farm and real food to death and give you Cheez Whiz and Twinkies as government approved food."
Further comments after story posted:
"Morningland Dairy has been tested and been found free of pathogens according to their blog (excerpt to follow). My question is this: was thecheese properly handled and refrigerated at the retail store and by the FDA after it was seized? If there is a problem at Morningland Dairy, wouldn’t theyhave found the bacteria when they took all those samples?

The saga of how they’ve been railroaded can be found here:

Despite ALWAYS being compliant with govt rules and regulations, and despite the fact that the FDA found NOTHING wrong at their dairy (if there really is a problem, it’s out in California!), Morningland has been forced to recall and embargo their cheeses based on a sample taken from a cheese that was seized in California (four months after it left Missouri) – and not tested until FIFTY FIVE DAYS after the sample was seized.
Now, despite the fact that the FDA took over 100 swabs of the dairy, and ALL the samples tested came back 100% free of pathogens, the FDA and the Missouri Milk Board have declared that Morningland Dairy must DESTROY ALL 50,000 pounds of their cheese product sitting innocently in their coolers. (This in addition to all the cheese destroyed due to the recall.)"

How to help: "For as little as $5 you can tell the FDA and their minions that you are smart enough to decide what you want to eat and don’t need their permission or “help” to figure out what is “good for us”. This battle must be won." The Uncheese Party:
