Crime of the century here folks...


A Northern California woman is facing potential jail time after she joined a Facebook food group and sold some of the meals she cooked online, which county officials say is illegal.

San Joaquin County officials cited Mariza Reulas, of Stockton, for selling her signature dish ceviche over the internet. Reulas now faces a trial and possible jail time for her sales.



On Dec. 3, 2015, someone contacted Reulas online and asked her for her ceviche. That person turned out to be an undercover San Joaquin County investigator in a sting operation to nab those selling food without special permits. Reulas and around a dozen others were cited for two misdemeanors for “operating a food facility and engaging in business without a permit.”


Food Fight

Seriously now, a sting operation?

Meanwhile, back at the madhouse...which may relocate to the White House after Tuesday...a Secretary of State sets up an illegal server, mishandles Classified materials (including getting her housekeeper to print out restricted information), and puts the United States Government up for sale (making a couple of hundred million in the process), and she gets the Democratic Party nomination for POTUS.

One system of justice for people named Clinton, and another one for everybody else.

The authorities in California may not have criminal illegal aliens under control (heck, they give them special sanctuary cities), but they sure have wrestled the evil Facebook recipe swapper network to the ground.

I am not surprised at all, California code enforcers are all about the low hanging fruit, easy pickings. How else would they generate revenue? And fluff themselves..to boot.

They were warned and I bet the evidence is gone! Whats the difference we have a housekeeper that comes in every Thursday and brings a meal for all of us??? We pay her and it gets cooked in her house.

SShhhhhh...quiet!

You wouldn't want your housekeeper's heinous criminal cooking enterprise to come to the attention of the Feds.

Would you prefer people are able to sell food without any checks? What happens when someone gets sick? I, for one, am happy that anyone selling food has to pass through hoops.

Oh and REALLY quite pathetic to throw in the Clinton comment. What does she have to do with this?

cited for two misdemeanors


1. how does a misdemeanor lead to jail time?

2. There are valid reasons for food to be prepared in a proper kitchen when it to be sold.

What do illegal aliens have to do with, selling perhaps tainted food?

She refused the plea offered to her, 3 years probation.

She sounds like an idiot.

Not quite as bad as all the stories of cops threatening and harassing kids selling lemonaid, but close.

Not really..

She was told to get a permit, she didn't.
She got a warning, she ignored it.
She refused to take a plea to keep her out of jail, she chose not to take it and then complains about how her kids are going to be alone.

How many chances did she want?

I think the government should stay out of everyday life.

If someone knowingly buys food from someone not licensed to sell it, then that's their risk and they are taking it knowingly.

If someone wants to buy only from licensed sellers, that's their choice too.

What's going to happen to all of those church Chicken Bakes, and Cake Sales?

Unless she was actually making false/misleading claims regarding the product she's selling, good on her for not folding to the stupid laws that say she has to have a freaking permit to sell food. It's right up there with the other ridiculous bureaucratic/socialist laws that say we can't use certain plants, etc.

If people get sick eating her food, then guess what? They'll stop buying her food. Stop treating people like babies and gtf out of our lives.

As much as that would be great, we live in a litigious society that doesn't take responsibility for their own actions..

People die from foodbourne illness, thousands every year and many many more end up in the hospital. That number would be exponentially higher without the safeguards that are in place.

This lady was selling raw fish and they were warned to stop. She should not go to jail, but she needs to stop. How would you feel if your loved one died because this irresponsible person didn't want to follow the rules?

And do you think that's going to magically fix itself by doubling down on what we can and can't do? That's how we got here in the first place. The only way society learns to take responsibility for their own actions, is to be given the chance to take responsibility for their own actions. People aren't actually that dumb, if given the chance.

No, it's silly.

We're not talking about some nefarious black-market ceviche kingpin here.

The sting likely cost taxpayers 10x more than this Facebook-cooking-group mom made by selling the occasional ceviche, and anyone who regularly "trades dishes" knows full well that it's not coming from a licensed restaurant.

As a former restaurateur I had to take regular food safety classes in each municipality where we had our restaurants. I also had to have my employees attend food handling classes at some point soon after their hiring to help ensure that there would not be any unsanitary behavior leading to food borne illness or cross contamination.

What's next, SWAT Teams are going to raid Momma's kitchen at dinner time, to make sure that the roast is being served at the Government-mandated ideal temperature?

Is Grandma going to get busted for not properly sanitizing her kitchen counters?
