Dairy Products Frozen Dessert Regulations (LAC 51:VII.2707)

December 10, 2019

These amendments are proposed to update sampling requirements for certain dairy product businesses that freeze or partially freeze and repackage frozen desserts made from frozen dessert mixes that were pasteurized, ultra-pasteurized or aseptically processed at another plant for wholesale.  The state health officer has reviewed the current regulatory scheme and is in agreement with the regulated entities that the currently adopted sampling schedule is excessively onerous on these  entities without providing a substantive additional public health benefit.  Therefore, the state health officer desires to revise the current regulatory language to adopt a more rational approach to the regulation of these particular dairy product facilities.
