    I’m doing a project on cottage food laws for a Graduate Food Studies program and I’m curious if there have been any court cases about cottage food? Whether it be to get laws enacted, changed, or banned? Or even a cottage food provider who is being sued by a customer? The only thing I’m finding is the current court case in Minnesota.

    Thanks for any help!

    For all the talk from health depts about cottage foods being unsafe (because the kitchen is not inspected), I have never heard of one person getting sued over their cottage food products. Many CFOs get liability insurance to protect against it, and yet as far as I can tell none have needed it. By the very nature of cottage foods, they are very safe, even when made in a home kitchen.

    The MN case is all I can think of as well. It’s odd that the only case is not against the cottage food law, but for it and against the state ag dept instead.
