Does any Michigan beeks know if the newly enacted Cottage Food law of 2010, eliminates the need for a MDA permit and inspection?

From their FAQ section it says: What types of Cottage Foods can I produce in my home? Non-potentially hazardous foods
that do not require time and/or temperature control for safety.

One item noted is jams and jellies, cause they can be stored at room temp.

It seems that honey would fit the new law.

The rules for the labels are going to lead to some pretty ugly labels.

Just wondering if anyone had heard anything definitive?

Thx,

Jay

Well according to the Red Tape Blog at MSU, honey is allowed. Woohooo.

The only rub I can see in the law is it has to be done in the home kitchen. It is not allowed in an outbuilding. Attached garage okay.
