Australian Capital Territory's Food Nannies Ban Parents From Selling Quiches at School Events

Some food labelled as "high risk"

|

NOT content with interfering in fund-raising barbecues, the ACT government's food safety bureaucrats have turned their attention to school fetes, telling parents they cannot sell their homemade quiches any more.

The government has this month enforced bans on a list of popular home-made dishes, telling parents they cannot sell foods it has labelled "high risk". That list includes spring rolls, casseroles or any other dishes containing meat or dairy, such as cakes containing custard or cream.
