Minnesota Department Of Health Regulations Limits Sales Of 'Cottage Foods'

Have you ever purchased a tasty cookie, or other baked goods from a community event?

Well a series of Minnesota regulations from the State Department of Health makes those sales of cottage foods illegal. “Cottage foods” are defined by the Minnesota State Department of Health as food products produced at home and offered for sale.

According to Minnesota, two Minnesotan bakers Jane Astramecki and Mara Heck are suing the state of Minnesota for the cottage food regulations.

The law states an individual baker can’t make more than $5,000 a year even when selling legally without facing fines, fees and possible jail time.

Astramecki says “Minnesota bakers ought to be able to sell however many treats they want, from wherever they want.”
