By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - A bill out supporters call the Food Freedom Act is headed to Gov. Doug Burgum's, R-N.D., desk.

​It would ban the state from regulating cottage industries, such as people who sell food at a farmers market.

The food must be sold in person and directly to the consumer.

The producers also must inform the buyers the food was not inspected or regulated.

The act allows the state Department of Health to investigate if someone claims to have gotten sick from the food.
