Wis. Senate Nixes Licenses for Bake Sales

Created: 02/11/2014 12:15 PM WDIO.com

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Senate has approved a bill that would exempt bake sale participants from obtaining a state license.

Current state law requires facilities that manufacture or prepare food for sale through baking, canning, freezing and bottling processes to obtain a processing license from the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

The bipartisan bill would create an exemption for sale of homemade baked goods to consumers by someone who receives less than $10,000 per year from the sale of food, registers with DATCP, takes a food safety class and labels each food item with their contact information and a statement warning the food wasn't subject to state inspection.

The Senate passed the bill on a voice vote Tuesday with no debate. It now goes to the state Assembly.
