View Amendment Current Amendment: 1 to Bill 4689 The Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Committee proposes the following Amendment No. 1 to H. 4689 (COUNCIL\NBD\12160AC12):

Reference is to the bill as introduced.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, by deleting Section 44-1-143(A)(2) on page 1, lines 37-38 and inserting:

/            (2)      'Nonpotentially hazardous foods' are candy and noncreme filled baked goods that are not potentially hazardous foods.      /

Amend the bill further, Section 44-1-143(D) on page 3, line 19 after /regulations/ by inserting /, including Fair Packaging requirements and food Allergen Labeling,/ So when amended Section 44-1-143(D) reads:

/(D) All food items packaged at the operation for sale must be properly labeled. The label must comply with all federal laws and regulations, including Fair Packaging requirements and Food Allergen labeling, and must include:
           (1)      the name and address of the home-based food production operation;
           (2)      the name of the product being sold;
           (3)      the ingredients used to make the product in descending order of predominance by weight; and
           (4)      a conspicuous statement printed in all capital letters and in a color that provides a clear contrast to the background that reads:
'NOT FOR RESALE - PROCESSED AND PREPARED BY A HOME-BASED FOOD PRODUCTION OPERATION THAT IS NOT SUBJECT TO SOUTH CAROLINA'S FOOD SAFETY REGULATIONS.'/

Amend the bill further, Section 44-1-143 on page 4, immediately after line 2 by inserting:

/(H)      A home-based food production operation may apply for an exemption from inspection and label review by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture under Section 39-25-10 et seq. if its annual sales are less than fifteen thousand dollars. Exemption forms must be provided by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. This exemption does not limit the South Carolina Department of Agriculture's authority to investigate a complaint or food borne illness outbreak."      /
