MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Some Wisconsin lawmakers say people selling canned foods at a farmer's market, should not have to follow the same rules as large food companies.
In February, lawmakers in Wisconsin enacted the so-called Pickle Bill, allowing small vendors to sell high-acid canned foods, like pickles, salsas and jams, without a license.
Joan Arnold of Rudolph, says people like her cannot afford to build or rent commercial kitchens needed to get a processing license, so she approves of the new law.
Health officials say Good-safety laws are in place to keep the public safe. They are worried people could get sick from foods made in kitchens that are not inspected.
