Colorado Considers Exempting In-State Sale of Meat from Regulation

Colorado House Bill 1062 and Senate Bill 79 would exempt the direct sale of meat from regulation or inspection by a public health agency if the animal was raised by the seller, sold to an in-state buyer, and the seller prominently displays a sign or gives the purchaser a document stating that the seller is not licensed, the animal or meat is not subject to regulation or inspection, and is not intended for resale. The purchaser would be prohibited from reselling the animal or meat, and the seller would not be liable for civil damages caused by inadequately cooking for preparing the animal or meat for consumption.
