AHouse Bill 1094 creates the Home Bakery Act of 2013.

It allows residential-based businesses that sell less than $200,000 of a product annually to be exempt from licensing requirements of the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

The food must be a baked good that does not contain meat products or fresh fruit.

The measure requires that a label be affixed to the product with the name of the food, the name and address of the baking business, and with an indication that it is not licensed by the state Department of Health

The Previous post has misquoted the amount of money that the Oklahoma Home Baker's bill allows you to make in Oklahoma.  It's Twenty Thousand Dollars a year. not two hundred thousand a year.  Also, if somebody makes a complaint about your bake goods, the Health Department Inspecter will be out to see you.  An individual had better keep good records and have a tax license or the Oklahoma Tax Commission could be out to see them too!

AI copied/pasted this straight out of the Tulsa World. They better get a new copy writer.

I looked it up in the Tulsa World, but they have made a mistake!  Also did a search of this bill on the internet and read in the Altus Paper that a woman from there turned in 3 facebook users for selling home baked goods before November 1. 2013.  The Jackson county Health Department contacted 2 of the individuals to quit doing this until November 1, 2013.  The other individual did have a valid certification license from the Health Department to be selling home baked goods from their store front!  Things are getting interesting here in Oklahoma!

Wow that would be crazy if it was $200,000.  I thought it had to be wrong.
