The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is continuing inspection services during Gov. Walz’s two-week stay at home order and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes inspections of dairy, meat, and food manufacturing facilities, retail food outlets, pesticide and fertilizer operations, and seed, grain, and nursery companies. MDA will continue to conduct in-person inspections; however, virtual or video-based inspections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Requests for inspection modifications due to COVID-19 should be made to your inspector.
