From what I understand it was not passed but was superseded by H.R. 2751: FDA Food Safety Modernization Act which did pass in December 2010. There is some wording that was amended back into the bill from SB 510. However, not all the hype about it is true and requires a great deal of research to get through the political rumors that are spread to see exactly what is true or false. The only way to get satisfaction on this issue is through bi-partisan support to protect organic gardening and farming, however, sadly, many organizations are so politicized they automatically cut their potential to make a difference in half by attempting to make it a partisan issue.

I've not heard of that bill but nothing surprises me any longer. Corporations are noticing people are doing this in a large way and I would imagine that is a way for them to keep their profits up. It will be near impossible if it passes to do anything if it is true. It will in effect shut down farmers markets crafts festivals you name it.
Has greed no end?
However I did check on Snopes and they say it is mostly false. Check the link:
