Inspections: Cottage Food Registration Program

The health authority may inspect a cottage food operation, only to investigate a food item that may be deemed to be adulterated pursuant to NRS 585.300 to 585.360, inclusive, or an outbreak or suspected outbreak of illness known or suspected to be caused by a contaminated food item. The cottage food operation shall cooperate with the health authority in any such inspection. If, as a result of such inspection, the health authority determines that the cottage food operation has produced an adulterated food item or was the source of an outbreak of illness caused by a contaminated food item, the health authority may charge and collect from the cottage food operation a fee in an amount that does not exceed the actual cost of the health authority to conduct the investigation.
