Home baked goods receive limited state regulation

Arizona residents who buy home baked pastries and goods are buying products with limited state regulations.

Home bakers in most Arizona counties can sell their goods to the public after receiving an online certificate from the Arizona Department of Health Services. But there are no random government inspections, such as with restaurants, of private homes.

“Because home baked and confectionery goods participants are not regulated in the same way that a restaurant or something is regulated, it’s really important that they are only making foods that are non-potentially hazardous,” said Jessica Rigler, branch chief for Public Health Preparedness at DHS.

Taryn MacQuilkin, owner of The Muffin Girl in Mesa, started her business in her kitchen after getting her certificate and a food handler’s card. She sold to farmer’s markets, which are visited by health inspectors.

Home bakers must also follow other state regulations.“I found the program in Arizona for home baked goods and I did some more research and I was able to be a good participant for it,” said Ms. MacQuilkin, who now bakes and sells muffins at her Mesa store.
