Provides that cottage food operations shall not sell or offer to sell low-acid canned foods (rather than listing specified varieties of low-acid canned foods). Provides that, in order to sell a fermented or acidified food, a cottage food operation shall (rather than a local health department may require a cottage food operation to) submit either (rather than both): (1) a recipe meeting meeting specified requirements; or (2) an annual written food safety plan and pH tests every 3 years (rather than only a pH test) meeting specified requirements. Provides that a local health department may require a water sample test to verify that the water source being used meets public safety standards related to E. coli coliform (rather than only meets public safety standards). Provides that food packaging may include the designation "Illinois-grown", "Illinois-sourced", or "Illinois farm product" if the products are local farm or food products as defined in specified provisions. Removes the repeal of provisions concerning home kitchen operations. Makes other changes. House Floor Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause.
