Hanna crafts argument over proposed FDA rule

BINGHAMTON — U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna visited Water Street Brewing Co. on Tuesday to issue harsh criticism of a proposed rule that threatens the long-standing relationship between craft breweries and local farmers.

According to Hanna, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s proposed rule would require breweries to dry and package their spent grain, a byproduct of the brewing process, before allowing it to be shipped to farms, where it can be used in animal feed.

“It’s hard to figure out who or what is driving something like this because it makes no sense at all,” said Hanna, R-Barneveld. “ … It’s a rule in search of a problem that doesn’t exist.”
