Bake sales may soon be exempt from needing a state license

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A bill that would exclude bake sales from needing a state license is set to go before the Wisconsin Senate today.

The current law requires a processing license from the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection agency for any facility that is going to prepare food for sale by means of baking, canning, freezing, or bottling.

Under the new bill an exemption would be created for individuals meeting certain criteria, such as registering with the DATCP, not earning more than $10,000 per year in sales, and also each product they sell must be labeled with their contact information and a warning statement that the food was made in a private home.
