Interstate commerce issue - shiping meat across state lines

Chicago, IL |
Filed under: Transportation law

About half the states have this limitation on sending meat across state lines. I heard that there is some kind of legal loophole and wondering if its legit or not. Basically I heard that you can set up a business in that state (IL for example) and another in another state that doesn't have that limitation (NJ for example) and ship it to your own business in NJ. Is this a legit option?

What you describe requires an expertise of an attorney with knowledge of federal interstate commerce clause and transportation issues. And, as you may imagine, a personal consultation is necessary in that case as many issues must be examined by that professional.
If you value potential benefits of such procedural enhancement of your business you should invest in a legal consultation.
