They want to expand list of home-baked goods that can be sold

Two Republican legislators want to expand the list of approved home-baked goods and confectionery products people can make in their home kitchens and sell for profit.
Sen. David Farnsworth, R-Mesa, and Sen. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, introduced SB1022, which would add fruit jams and jellies, dry mixes made with ingredients approved by the Arizona Department of Health Services, dry pasta and roasted nuts to the list of “cottage food products.”
The health department defines cottage food products as items that are prepared in a home kitchen for sale that are not-potentially hazardous, meaning there’s a slim chance they would carry bacteria that will make a consumer sick.
