SECTION 71-V
Labeling requirements
Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 4-C
§ 71-v. Labeling requirements. 1. The commissioner shall, by
regulation, require that packaged foreign dairy products be labeled in
such a manner that, at each stage of distribution within this state,
such packaged foreign dairy product will be readily identifiable as
being imported. The commissioner may, to the extent he deems
appropriate, establish different labeling requirements for packaged
foreign dairy products:

a. of different types or classes;

b. with different types of packaging;

c. in different stages of distribution; and

d. intended for delivery to different types or classes of users.

2. If the commissioner determines that, at any stage of distribution:

a. the nature of the container or wrapping of a packaged foreign dairy
product makes labeling impractical or inappropriate; and

b. such packaged foreign dairy product will, by means other than
labeling, be identifiable by any person, other than a common carrier, to
whom such packaged foreign dairy product is displayed or delivered as
being imported;
he may exempt such packaged foreign dairy product, at such stage of
distribution, from the labeling requirements established pursuant to
subdivision one.
