Forget the overseas food-processing plants that have been responsible for several recent food safety scares such as contaminated seafood and powdered milk. The FDA doesn't even have enough inspectors to visit U.S. processing plants.Here’s what happens to food producers who distribute tainted goods: they go out of business. That’s incentive enough to produce clean, healthy food, and the government knows it. But in order to be seen as “protecting” the public, and in order to keep the big, nationalized farm conglomerates campaign cash coming, politicians need to continue to install burdensome regulations that keeps them ahead of their competitors.
Nor does it have the authority to order a recall when tainted food comes to light. It can't even track dangerous food from the plant where it was processed to the stores where it was sold.
Making jam safely is a rather simple process. Follow the recipe exactly, make sure your jam is acidic enough by adding lemon juice if needed, and boil your jam for long enough to kill anything that may be in it. Do we really need a tiny Mom ‘n Pop jam business to routinely send jam samples to a lab for analysis to make sure their process is working?No, but major food producers relish in the thought of driving these little guys out of business. A better way to go is leaving food safety up to the consumer, and keeping Uncle Sam as far away as possible.
