State Regulations for Bagged Ice

Because ice is food, bagged ice is often held to the same requirements and licenses that apply to other food manufacturing.  You should investigate local, state and federal regulations in conjunction with bagging your own ice.  To assist you in getting started, please refer to the table below that will link you to an appropriate section of your state's website on food safety or health, as well as the FDA website at the federal level.
Please be advised that this list is not intended to be exhaustive or all-encompassing, and Follett Corporation is not responsible for the contents or reliability of any other websites to which we provide a link. It is your responsibility to investigate any applicable federal, state, and local regulations in your jurisdiction.
