WI egg producers may not need license under bill

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin farmers would be allowed to sell eggs at farmers' markets without a food processing license under a bill scheduled for a vote in the state Assembly.

The bill up for a vote Thursday sets certain criteria for those looking to sell eggs from chickens on their farm.,

Eggs would need to be stored at or below 41 degrees prior to sale. Producers would also have to have less than 150 birds in their flocks, and they would need to label the packaging with a statement that the eggs are ungraded.

Egg packaging would have to show the date of packaging, and eggs couldn't be sold more than 30 days after packaging.

The bill has bipartisan support.
