Agriculture, Department of--Dairy Inspection Program
The core function of the Dairy Inspection program is to regulate the production, transportation, processing and distribution of milk and dairy products from cow to consumer. Dairy inspection staff enforces Kansas dairy laws as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Grade A Pasteurized Milk Ordinance, which is adopted by reference in Kansas. This provides uniform inspections and allows milk to move freely in interstate commerce under the Interstate Milk Shippers agreement between the states, FDA and the dairy industry. The Dairy Inspection program conducts inspections, collects samples for analysis, and issues permits and licenses to ensure that milk and dairy products are produced, processed and distributed to reach consumers in a safe, wholesome and unadulterated form. They also inspect ice plants, and beer, wine and cider producers and bottlers.
