So I am going to work on getting licensed and I have been reading the regulations and have a few questions.
The regs say "During the initial inspection of the home-based food operation, the sanitarian will record the product (s) menu. All additions or revisions to the original menu after the initial registration must be communicated to regional PDA Food Safety Office.
So does this mean that they record every flavor variation ad if you create a new one you need to notify them, or does this mean they record general categories like cakes, cookies, etc.?
Also, I found the labeling section very confusing. Do you label cakes you sell and deliver directly to a customer? I am used to labeling my biscotti, but not special order items. I would like to hear how you handle this?
Thank you for all your helpful advice. I am so excited to start up my business again!
AAnyone have any input on this?
AI recommend contacting the PDA directly and asking them.
AI plan to do so this week, I just thought maybe I could get a heads up here first. I know there are other bakers from Lancaster county here.
I don't live in Lancaster County, but I did not have to provide any recipies. I did have them ready if requested.
Also, if I sell a directly I don't label, but at the farmer's market I have the labels on the prepackaged items.
