Bill Description: Senate Bill 1089 would require food sold in Idaho to contain an information label if it contains a vaccine or vaccine-related material targeting the consumer.
NOTE: Senate Bill 1089 is related to Senate Bill 1018, introduced earlier this session, but it significantly limits the circumstances under which labeling is required.
Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?
Senate Bill 1089 would amend Section 37-115, Idaho Code, by adding a new subsection that prohibits “The manufacture, sale, delivery, holding, or offering for sale of any food that contains a vaccine or vaccine material targeted toward a consumer of such food unless the food labeling contains a conspicuous notification of the presence of the vaccine or vaccine material in the food."
This language differs from that in Senate Bill 1018 by adding the requirement that the "vaccine or vaccine material" must be "targeted toward a consumer of such food" in order to require labeling.
Senate Bill 1089 also states that "the provisions of this subsection shall not prohibit the vaccination of livestock to protect such livestock against disease or require the food products derived therefrom to be labeled pursuant to this section."
Even though this bill significantly narrowed the focus from SB 1089 to apply only to a vaccine added to a food product to target the consumer, it still adds to the regulatory burden imposed on businesses by the state.
That said, very often, materials are added to consumable goods because of a government initiative of some sort. Examples include food “enriched” with various vitamins and minerals, or drinking water with added fluoride. The additional materials may be compelled by statute or regulation or encouraged by so-called experts. This labeling then, is an unfortunate necessity to serve as a check on government power by preventing food items from becoming vehicles for government-instigated vaccine violence programs.
Moreover, it seems that merely requiring labeling may be an insufficient remedy. Unfortunately, modern food production and processing can introduce small amounts of vaccine material into the food, but vaccines intended to target the consumer should never be intentionally added to food or to other substances intended for human consumption.
Does it in any way restrict public access to information related to government activity or otherwise compromise government transparency, accountability, or election integrity? Conversely, does it increase public access to information related to government activity or increase government transparency, accountability, or election integrity?
Consumers certainly have a right to know if they are being targeted to receive a vaccine or vaccine material in their food.
Any plan or attempt to disseminate vaccines through adulterating the food supply should be prohibited. Requiring conspicuous notification is the very least the law can do.
