Public Hearing Notice: Frozen Desserts Rules
Thursday, March 29, 2018 | Public Meeting Notice | Dairy
The Ohio Department of Agriculture will hold a public hearing for the purpose of accepting testimony on the proposed amendments made to Chapter 901:11-3 of the Ohio Administrative Code.

Chapter 901:11-3 of the Ohio Administrative Code regulates the production of frozen desserts in the state of Ohio. These rules contained in this package mirror federal regulations in order to allow Ohio’s frozen dessert processors to be able to ship all across the country. Frozen desserts are defined in OAC 901:11-3-02 but generally includes products such as ice cream and frozen custard. Without proper safeguards, the manufacturing process can result in the growth of highly dangerous pathogens such as Clostridium botulinum, E. coli 0157:H7, Salmonella, and Listeria monocytogenes. These bacteria can result in human illnesses including respiratory problems, pneumonia, diarrhea, vomiting, and in some cases can result in the death of the infected individual. Due to this high level of risk there is significant regulation to monitor the frozen dessert production industry which is designed to prevent illness and protect consumers.

The hearing will be held on:

May 2, 2018 at 9:00 A.M.
Ohio Department of Agriculture
Bromfield Administration Building
Hearing Room 129 (Seminar “A”)
