Draft Proposed
Food Code Rule Revision Language
Minnesota Food Code Rule Revision

We continue to work with the Revisor to refine the language and make changes to the draft food code based on new information. Many draft pages contain hand-written corrections that we have made to the Revisor’s text.  As we receive new versions of chapters from the Revisor, we will post them on the Web page. This draft is very preliminary and will be one of several sets of revisions.  We are fully aware that the posted chapters are not perfect.  They are what we have to share with you today.

If you wish to review this version and make comments, please free to do so.   It is not necessary to have reviewed any or all of the chapters before the first round of Stakeholders Informational Meetings.  We plan to hold more informational meetings, comment solicitation meetings and we anticipate holding a public hearing.

Please use the form below to submit comments, corrections and questions: If you have any questions, please contact:
