Regulations for the Preparation and Sale of Ice Cream
A circular letter has been issued by the public health service calling attention to well known facts connected with alimentary intoxication due to the ingestion of ice cream, more particularly in infants. It gives the essential features of the regulation of the sale of ice cream in foreign countries and in Belgium. The board of health has drafted a regulation that prohibits the use of the following substances in the manufacture of ice cream or ice cream products: (1) all substances, other than flavoring extracts, that have not been boiled for at least twenty minutes; (2) harmful substances whether damaged or prohibited by regulations in force; antiseptics; artificial coloring matter, when the name given to the product indicates or suggests that it contains eggs, cocoa or chocolate, and (3) eggs preserved in the form of paste or powder.
