The department shall have free access, at all reasonable hours when the
business is open to the general public, to any establishment, premises, or
building where eggs are processed, stored, or offered for sale, and to any
vehicle used to transport or hold eggs, for the purpose of inspecting the
establishment, premises, building, or vehicle or the eggs to determine
compliance with the provisions of the Kentucky egg marketing law.
The department shall have free access at all reasonable hours when the
business is open to the general public, to any restaurant kitchen, hotel kitchen,

established by USDA, the inspector shall take the necessary action and issue
an advisory on proper procedures.
All licensees shall keep a record of all eggs handled during the license year,
