Cottage Food Bill AB1616, Melissa Martel

Everyone wants to know about the Cottage Food Bill!  I first found out about it from my friend Simona Carini back in February 2012 — well, turns out it will be going into effect in January 2013.  The condensed version is that many items that are relatively food safe (pH of 4.6 and lower), can be produced in a home kitchen.  There are a lot of things you have to do before you start whipping up that batch of strawberry huckleberry jam though… While there is a lot of information about the bill online, you can listen to an interview with Melissa Martel from the Humboldt County Environmental Health Division by clicking here.  for more information about what the bill entails, click here.
