Hello all. I am in Massachusetts and I have found that selling eggs and bids does not take a license. However I have found nothing about selling birds that have been processed. Does anyone know about this?
I quick google search of "Massachusetts law selling processed meat" brough up a link to a pdf titled Food Protection Program Policies, Procedures and Guidelines. Looks like you can't sell processed meat.
Here is a quote:
"Meat and Poultry Intended for Sale as Food:
All domesticated meat and poultry whose product is intended for sale must be slaughtered and processed in an U. S. Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA/FSIS) inspected facility. The facility must be subject to mandatory or exempt inspection by USDA/FSIS. All USDA/FSIS inspected facilities are subject to licensure by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH).
