TOPEKA | State health officials have banned a company from selling its doughnuts at a Topeka farmers' market because they don't contain whole wheat flour from Kansas.
A state health department spokesman says the cider doughnuts from Rees Fruit Farm were banned under a new state regulation. The rule says all the main ingredients for baked or processed good at the market must be grown and processed in Kansas.
The spokesman says the rule is designed to help the market meet its mission of increasing access to fresh, locally grown products.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that several customers at the Wednesday farmers' market aren't happy about missing out on their cider doughnuts.

A Rees Fruit Farm spokeswoman says the company will continue to attend the farmers' market, without the doughnuts.
