A group of home bakers are suing to overturn a New Jersey law that says they can’t bake their cakes and make money too.
A lawsuit they said they’re filing in state Superior Court seeks to “vindicate the right of New Jerseyans to earn an honest living by selling safe and delicious home-baked goods and other homemade foods to their friends, neighbors and other consumers.”
New Jersey is the only state in the nation that bans the sale of homemade foods for profit out of concerns for health and sanitation. You can sell home-baked goods for charity.
The lawsuit called the ban “arbitrary and irrational in violation of the New Jersey Constitution’s due process guarantee.”
