Farmers allowed to sell their own eggs without needing license under bill approved

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state Senate voted Tuesday to let farmers sell their own eggs at farmers' markets without having to get a state food processing license.

The Assembly okayed the bill last month. It now goes to Governor Scott Walker for final action.

The measure includes a number of conditions for farmers to follow. Only producers with fewer than 150 birds could be exempt from licensing -- and the labels would have to state that their eggs are ungraded.

Those eggs could only be sold within 30 days after packaging -- and their packaging dates would have to put on the labels.

Also, the eggs would have to be stored at 41 degrees or colder before their sales.
