CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Gov. Matt Mead has signed into law legislation loosening restrictions on food sales in Wyoming.

The Wyoming Food Freedom Act would exempt Wyoming food sales from government inspections, licensing and certification as long as they are single transactions between a producer and an “informed end consumer.”

This would apply to sales at farmers’ markets and the ability for small farmers or other individuals to sell homegrown or locally raised products.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that the bill received overwhelming support from lawmakers despite concerns from state health officials who said removing the regulations, especially unpasteurized dairy products, could lead to public safety issues.
