Government raids of producers, distributors, and even consumers of nutritionally dense foods appear to be happening more frequently.
Sometimes they are meant to counter raw dairy production, other times to challenge private food organizations over whether they should be licensed as food retailers.
Grist offers the following advice for preparing for and dealing with a raid:
- Be wary of strangers who want to join your private buying group or herdshare
- Have a video camera at the ready
- Have a plan of action
- Read the search warrant fine print
- Keep computer backups
