The Michigan City Police Department is warning the citizens of LaPorte County of complaints they have received regarding door-to-door meat or seafood sellers. Police report the sellers have allegedly made misleading or false statements to prospective customers and that they may not have the proper licensing to be even selling these products.
Police report the LaPorte County Health Department has very strict guidelines that all door-to-door food sales are required to be licensed, inspected and verified that the product has come from a licensed facility.
In addition to the requirements imposed by Health Department, one who desires to sell meat or seafood door-to-door within the City of Michigan City, must apply for and be issued an Itinerant Vendor License by the City. To verify whether an individual has obtained the proper licensing from the Health Department, you may contact the LaPorte County Health Department at 219-326-6808 or 219-874-5611 (ext. 2220), and to verify whether an individual had obtained an Itinerant Vendor License from the City of Michigan City, you may contact the Controller’s Office at 219-873-1404.
