New CT grown labeling law to be enforced

Consumer

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)  –  A new law that began in October stating that only products grown or produced in Connecticut can be advertised as “Connecticut Grown.” will now be enforced at farmers’ markets in the state.

The Connecticut Department of Agriculture says it will conducting unannounced inspections at markets across the state.

Under the law the “Connecticut Grown” sign at farmers’ markets must be readily visible to consumers, be at least three by five inches in size and have lettering in a size, font, or print clearly and easily legible and state something substantially similar to ” This farm product is Connecticut-Grown or produced by the following person or business: (name & address of business).”

Anyone found violating the law will be warned the first time and then will be fined $100 for each additional violation.
