Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 12-A
§ 156-gg. Branding closed packages of potatoes. 1. No person shall
sell, expose for sale, or transport for sale, potatoes in closed
packages which are not branded or marked with the grade of the potatoes
contained therein in conformity with official standards and grades for
potatoes established and promulgated by the commissioner under the
provisions of this article, or, with the official standards of the
United States commonly known as U.S. grades, except that potatoes packed
in consumer packages in retail stores containing fifteen pounds or less
and exposed for sale therein need not be so marked provided they are
exposed for sale immediately adjacent and conform in variety, grade,
size and condition to a bulk display of such potatoes which includes as
a part thereof a display sign conspicuously marked as to the grade of
the potatoes in conformity with the foregoing requirements of this
section. Potatoes in closed packages containing more than sixty pounds
net not graded and classified as to quality in accordance with such
standards and grades, nor branded or marked in conformity therewith,
shall be branded or marked "unclassified".

2. For the purpose of this section, a closed package shall mean any
container the entire contents of which cannot be adequately inspected
without opening it.
