Hello! Just wanted to know how to make this task make sense and easy on my brain! Do you guys have to have a label for every cake/cupcake that goes out of your shop? If so, how did you handle that without going crazy! I never had to do this and now I'm trying to think of every ingredient in all my recipes to create labels! ugh! Help! Any advice? Thanks guys!
I just talked to my health dept about this. He told me that if the product was in a place where the customer could come in the door and pick it up themselves that it has to be labeled. If that same product is under a dome, behind a counter, in a case, on a shelf, etc. that I would have to pick it up and hand it to the customer then I don't have to label. Guess what I'm gonna do! LOL! You might check with you HD on this, maybe they're all different.
My inspector said on a self serve case like I have, the ingredient list has to be where the customer can look at it if they choose. It doesn't have to be a label on each item, especially since a cookie isn't wrapped and you can't stick a label on it! I keep a booklet on top of the case that has the ingredients of everything I ever put in there and if anyone asks, there it is! I think it really does vary from state to state, maybe even county to county, better ask to be sure!
i don't have to either.
Thanks guys! It is true that when you go to a bakery and get something out of the case they don't slap a sticker on it! Good point! I'm talking to my inspector this morning so I'll keep you updated! Thanks again
