Kosher and Halal Food Products
Maryland law requires businesses that sell or serve unpackaged Kosher or Halal food products to post a disclosure statement at their place of business identifying the basis for their representation that their products are Kosher or Halal. The Consumer Protection Division has promulgated regulations implementing these provisions and has designed the required disclosure forms, which are available by clicking the links on this page, calling the Division at (410) 576-6557, or sending a request by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The law does not define what is or is not Kosher or Halal. Instead,
by requiring businesses to disclose the basis for their representation
that their products are Kosher or Halal, consumers can make their own
determination whether the products meet their standards.
