Wild Mushroom
Advisory Workgroup

During the course of the Food Code rule revision, a number of people approached MDH and MDA about the section of the code, Minnesota Rules 4616.0155 that regulates wild mushrooms. They wanted to work with the Departments to clarify and update the rule language and explore options for compliance with the requirements. An Advisory Workgroup has been formed to address this section of the code. The Workgroup members are mushroom producers, distributors, wholesalers, foragers, restaurant owners and chefs, regulators and others interested in mushrooms.
