Ohio looks to be cracking down on Amish-made foodstuffs, some of which are sold without following state rules on refrigeration and inspection.

Could this spell the end of the legendary Amish baked goods stand?  Some items are exempt–cookies and cakes, for example. But others fall under the regulations, such as those containing cream cheese or canned fruits and veggies.

Is this a religious issue?  One of individual liberties?  Or is it about the advantage Amish businesses get through exemptions from regulation that non-Amish businesses are subject to?
