The comment period for the Wyoming Food Safety Rule is in the process of being extended and public hearings scheduled across the state. This comes after outspoken opposition suggesting the amendments were too restrictive. Wyoming Department of Agriculture representatives hope some clarification helps.

“The goal of them is to make it a little bit easier for producers, and what-not, to sell their products. People are getting worried that we’re trying to take opportunity away when that’s not the case. We’re trying to provide more opportunity for people.”

Agriculture Department Spokesman, Derek Grant, says raw milk sales would remain illegal, but the milk could be served in the home of the animal’s sole owner.

There’s no change to the sale of unprocessed leafy greens, or ungraded eggs, but a licensing proposal could make the controlled sale of them an option.

Grant says locations and dates for hearings should be announced soon.

Here’s a link to the proposed rule changes,  http://wyagric.state.wy.us/component/content/article/34-agnews/267-wyoming-food-rule-change-to-2011
