Section 71-V Labeling requirements

Agriculture & Markets (AGM)

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.
