Section 391-R

General Business (GBS)

Restricted access to retail sale of ipecac. 1. Any retail establishment that sells any product or products containing as the only active ingredient ipecac, shall limit access to such products in a manner designed to prevent the misuse or abuse of such products. Such limitations shall include removing such products from shelves and other locations that are directly accessible by customers, and placing such products behind a pharmacy counter so that a consumer must request such products in order to obtain such products from an employee working in the pharmacy. If the retail establishment wishes to sell such products but does not maintain a pharmacy at that retail location, such products shall be made secure such that they may only be accessed by a manager, assistant manager, acting manager or other supervisory personnel at such location.

  2. As used in this section "retail establishment" means every vendor that in the regular course of business sells products containing ipecac at retail directly to the public including, but not limited to, pharmacies, grocery stores, and other retail stores.
