(k) The alteration, mutilation, destruction, obliteration, or removal of the whole or any part of the labeling of, or the doing of any other act with respect to, a food, drug, device, or cosmetic, if such act is done while such article is held for sale ( whether or not the first sale) after shipment in interstate commerce and results in such article being adulterated or misbranded.

Regulation. [$ 1.2] Labeling includes all written, printed, or graphic matter accompanying an article at any time while such article is in interstate commerce or held for sale after shipment or delivery in interstate commerce.

(SEC. 201. For the purposes of this Act-]

(n) If an article is alleged to be misbranded because the labeling is misleading, then in determining whether the labeling is misleading there shall be taken into account (among other things) not only representations made or suggested by statement, word, design, device, or any combination thereof, but also the extent to which the labeling fails to reveal facts material in the light of such representations or material with respect to consequences which may result from the use of the article to which the labeling relates under the conditions of use prescribed in the labeling thereof or under such conditions of use as are customary or usual.

Regulation. [8 1.3] The existence of a difference of opinion, among experts qualified by scientific training and experience, as to the truth of a representation made or suggested in the labeling is a fact (among other facts) the failure to reveal which may render the labeling misleading, if there is a material weight of opinion contrary to such representation.

REPORT OF MINOR VIOLATIONS

SEC. 306. Nothing in this Act shall be construed as requiring the Administrator to report for prosecution, or for the institution of libel or injunction proceedings, minor violations of this Act whenever he believes that the public interest will be adequately served by a suitable written notice or warning.

CHAPTER IV-FOOD

DEFINITIONS AND STANDARDS FOR FOOD Sec. 401. Whenever in the judgment of the Administrator such action will promote honesty and fair dealing in the interest of consumers, he shall promulgate regulations fixing and establishing for any food, under its common or usual name so far as practicable, a reasonable definition and standard of identity, a reasonable standard of quality, and/or reasonable standards of fill of container: Provided, That no definition and standard of identity and no standard of quality shall be established for fresh or dried fruits, fresh or dried vegetables, or butter, except that definitions and standards of identity may be established for avocadoes, cantaloupes, citrus fruits, and melons.

In the prescribing of any standard of quality for any canned fruit or canned vegetable, consideration shall be given and due allowance made for the differing characteristics of the several varieties of such fruit or vegetable. In prescribing a definition and standard of identity for any food or class of food in which optional ingredients are permitted, the Administrator shall, for the purpose of promoting honesty and fair dealing in the interest of consumers, designate the optional ingredients which shall be named on the label.

Regulation. [$ 1.8] (a) Where a food is not manufactured by the person whose name appears on the label, the name shall be qualified by a phrase which reveals the connection such person has with such food, such as “Manufactured for and Packed by ," “Distributed by

," or other similar phrase which expresses the facts.

(b) The statement of the place of business shall include the street address, if any, of such place, unless such street ad. dress is shown in a current city directory or telephone directory.

(c) If a person manufactures, packs, or distributes a food at a place other than his principal place of business, the label may state the principal place of business in lieu of the actual place where each package of such food was manufactured or packed or is to be distributed, if such statement is not misleading in any particular.

(d) The requirement that the label shall contain the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor shall not be considered to relieve any food from the requirement that its label shall not be misleading in any particular. (e) (1) The statement of the quantity of the contents shall

reveal the quantity of food in the package, exclusive of

wrappers and other material packed with such food. (2) The statement shall be expressed in the terms of

weight, measure, numerical count, or a combination of numerical count and weight or measure, which are generally used by consumers to express quantity of such food and which give accurate information as to the quantity thereof. But if no general consumer usage in expressing accurate information as to the quantity of such food exists, the statement shall be in terms of liquid measure if the food is liquid, or in terms of weight if the food is solid, semisolid, viscous, or a mixture of solid and liquid; except that such statement may be in terms of dry measure if the food is a fresh fruit, fresh vegetable, or other dry com

modity. (f) (1) A statement of weight shall be in terms of the avoir

dupois pound and ounce. A statement of liquid measure shall be in terms of the United States gallon of 231 cubic inches and quart, pint, and fluid ounce subdivi. sions thereof, and, except in case of frozen food which is so consumed, shall express the volume at 68° Fahrenheit (20° Centigrade).

to which such shipment is exported. (2) A statement of weight or measure in the terms speci

fied in subparagraph (1) of this paragraph may be supplemented by a statement in terms of the metric

system of weight or measure. (3) Unless an unqualified statement of numerical count

gives accurate information as to the quantity of food in the package, it shall be supplemented by such statement of weight, measure, or size of the individual

units of the food as will give such information. (g) Statements shall contain only such fractions as are generally used in expressing the quantity of the food. A common

MISBRANDED FOOD SEC. 403. A food shall be deemed to be misbranded

the contents permissible under paragraphs (j) and (k) of this section in the case of each shipment or other delivery shall be determined by the facts in such case.

(m) A food shall be exempt from compliance with the requirements of clause (2) of section 403 (e) of the Act if: (1) The quantity of the contents, as expressed in terms

applicable to such food under the provisions of paragraph (e) (2) of this section, is less than one-half ounce avoirdupois, or less than one-half fluid ounce, or (in case the units of the food can be easily counted

without opening the package) less than six' units; or (2) The statement of the quantity of the contents of the

package, together with all other words, statements, and information required by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label, cannot, because of insufficient label space, be so placed on the label as to comply with the requirements of section 403 (1) of

the Act and regulations promulgated thereunder. (Sec. 403. A food shall be deemed to be misbranded-]

(f) If any word, statement, or other information required by or under authority of this Act to appear on the label or labeling is not prominently placed thereon with such conspicuousness (as compared with other words, statements, designs, or devices, in the labeling) and in such terms as to render it likely to be read and understood by the ordinary individual under customary conditions of purchase and use.

Regulation. [8 1.9] (a) A word, statement, or other information required by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label may lack that prominence and conspicuousness required by section 403 (f) of the Act by reason (among other reasons) of: (1) The failure of such word, statement, or information

to appear on the part or panel of the label which is presented or displayed under customary conditions of

purchase; (2) The failure of such word, statement, or information to

appear on two or more parts or panels of the label, each of which has sufficient space therefor, and each of which is so designed as to render it likely to be, under customary conditions of purchase, the part or

panel displayed; (3) The failure of the label to extend over the area of the

container or package available for such extension, so as to provide sufficient label space for the prominent

placing of such word, statement, or information; (4) Insufficiency of label space (for the prominent placing

of such word, statement, or information) resulting from the use of label space for any word, statement, design, or device which is not required by or under

authority of the Act to appear on the label; (5) Insufficiency of label space (for the prominent placing

of such word, statement, or information) resulting from the use of label space to give materially greater conspicuousness to any other word, statement, or in

formation, or to any design or device; or (6) Smallness or style of type in which such word, state

ment, or information appears, insufficient background contrast, obscuring designs or vignettes, or crowding

with other written, printed, or graphic matter. (b) No exemption depending on insufficiency of label space, as prescribed in regulations promulgated under section 40$ (e) or" (i) of the Act, shall apply if such insufficiency is caused by: (1) The use of label space for any word, statement, de

sign, or device which is not required by or under au

thority of the Act to appear on the label; (2) The use of label space, to give greater conspicuous(c) (1) All words, statements, and other information re

fraction shall be reduced to its lowest terms; a decimal fraction
shall not be carried out to more than two places.
(h) (1) If the quantity of food in the package equals or

exceeds the smallest unit of weight or measure which
is specified in paragraph (f) of this section, and which
is applicable to such food under the provisions of
paragraph (e) (2) of this section, the statement shall
express the number of the largest of such units con-
tained in the package (for example, the statement on
the label of a package which contains one quart
of food shall be “1 quart”, and not "2 pints" or
"32 Auid ounces"), unless the statement is made in
accordance with the provisions of subparagraph (2)
of this paragraph. Where such number is a whole
number and a fraction, there may be substituted
for the fraction its equivalent in smaller units, if
any smaller is specified in such paragraph (f) (for
examples, 134 quarts may be expressed as “1 quart 11/2
pints" or "l quart 1 pini 8 fluid ounces”; 114 pounds
may be expressed as “#1 pound 4 ounces"). The stated
number of any unit which is smaller than the largest
unit (specified in such paragraph (f)) contained in
the package shall not equal or exceed the number of
such smaller units in the next larger unit so specified
(for examples, instead of “1 quart 16 fluid ounces” the
statement shall be “11/2 quarts” or “1 quart ! pint";
instead of “24 ounces" the statement shall be “11/2

pounds" or "1 pound 8 ounces").
(2) In the case of a food with respect to which there exists

an established custom of stating the quantity of the
contents as a fraction of a unit, which unit is larger
than the quantity contained in the package, or as
units smaller than the largest unit contained therein,
the statement may be made in accordance with such

custom if it is informative to consumers.
(i) The statement shall express the minimum quantity, or
the average quantity, of the contents of the packages. If the
statement is not so qualified as to show definitely that the
quantity expressed is the minimum quantity, the statement
shall be considered to express the average quantity.

(i) Where the statement expresses the minimum quantity, no variation below the stated minimum shall be permitted except variations below the stated weight or measure caused by ordinary and customary exposure, after the food is introduced into interstate commerce, to conditions which normally occur in good distribution practice and which unavoidably result in decreased weight or measure. Variations above the stated minimum shall not be unreasonably large.

(k) Where the statement does not express the minimum
quantity:
(1) variations from the stated weight or measure shall

be permitted when caused by ordinary and customary
exposure, after the food is introduced into interstate
commerce, to conditions which normally occur in good
distribution practice and which unavoidably result in

change of weight or measure;
(2) variations from the stated weight, measure, or numeri-

cal count shall be permitted when caused by unavoid-
able deviations in weighing, measuring, or counting
individual packages which occur in good packing prac-
tice.
But under subparagraph (2) of this paragraph varia-
tions shall not be permitted to such extent that the
average of the quantities in the packages comprising
a shipment or other delivery of the food is below the
quantity stated, and no unreasonable shortage in any
package shall be permitted, even though overages in
other packages in the same shipment or delivery com-

pensate for such shortage.
(1) The extent of variations from the stated quantity of

ness to any word, statement, or other information than

is required by section 403 (f) of the Act; or (3) The use of label space for any representation in a

foreign language.

quired by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label or labeling shall appear thereon in the Eng

lish language. (2) If the label contains any representation in a foreign

language, all words, statements, and other information required by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label shall appear thereon in the foreign lan

guage. (3) If the labeling contains any representation in a for

eign language, all words, statements, and other information required by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label or labeling shall appear on the labeling in the foreign language.

[Sec. 403. A food shall be deemed misbranded—] (h) If it purports to be or is represented as

(2) a food for which a standard or standards of fill of container have been prescribed by regulations as provided by section 401, and it falls below the standard of fill of container applicable thereto, unless its label bears, in such manner and form as such regulations specify, a statement that it falls below such standard.

REGULATIONS MAKING EXEMPTIONS SEC. 405. The Administrator shall promulgate regulations exempting from any labeling requirements of this Act (1) small open containers of fresh fruits and fresh vegetables and (2) food which is, in accordance with the practice of the trade, to be processed, labeled, or repacked in substantial quantities at establishments other than those where originally processed or packed, on condition that such food is not adulterated or misbranded under the provisions of this Act upon removal from such processing, labeling, or repacking establishment. Regulation. [$ 1.13] (a) (1) An open container is a con

tainer of rigid or semi-rigid construction, which is

not closed by lid, wrapper, or otherwise. (2) An open container of a fresh fruit or fresh vegetable,

the quantity of contents of which is not more than one dry quart, shall be exempt from the labeling requirements of paragraphs (e), (g) (2) (with respect to the name of the food specified in the definition and standard), and (i) (1) of section 403 of the Act; but such exemption shall be on the condition that if two or more such containers are enclosed in a crate or other shipping package, such crate or package shall bear labeling showing the number of such containers enclosed therein and the quantity of the contents of each.

(b) The labeling of a drug which contains two or more ingredients may be misleading by reason (among other reasons) of the designation of such'drug in such labeling by a name which includes or suggests the name of one or more but not all such ingredients, even though the names of all such ingredients are stated elsewhere in the labeling.

[SEC. 502. A drug or device shall be deemed to be misbranded-]

(b) If in package form unless it bears a label containing (1) the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor; and (2) an accurate statement of the quantity of the contents in terms of weight, measure, or numerical count: Provided, That under clause (2) of this paragraph reasonable variations shall be permitted, and exemptions as to small packages shall be established, by regulations prescribed by the Administrator.

Regulation. [$ 1.102] (a) If a drug or device is not manufactured by the person whose name appears on the label, the name shall be qualified by a phrase which reveals the connection such person has with such drug or device, such as “Manu. factured for and Packed by

;" “Distributed by ,” or other similar phrase which expresses the facts. (b) The statement of the place of business shall include the street address, if any, of such place, unless such street address is shown in a current city directory or telephone directory.

(c) Where a person manufactures, packs, or distributes a drug or device at a place other than his principal place of business, the label may state the principal place of business in lieu of the actual place where each package of such drug or device was manufactured or packed or is to be distributed, if such statement is not misleading in any particular.

(d) The requirement that the label shall contain the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor shall not be considered to relieve any drug or device from the requirement that its label shall not be misleading in any particular. (e) (1) The statement of the quantity of the contents of a

package of a drug shall reveal the quantity of such drug in the package, exclusive of wrappers and other

material packed with such drug. (2) The statement shall be expressed in the terms of

weight, measure, numerical count, or a combination of numerical count and weight or measure, which are generally used by consumers and users of such drug to express quantity thereof and which give accurate information as to such quantity. But if no general usage in expressing accurate information as to the quantity of such drug exists among consumers and users thereof, the statement of the quantity of a drug which is not in tablet, capsule, ampul, or other unit form shall be in terms of weight if the drug is solid, semisolid, or viscous, or in terms of measure if the drug is liquid; the statement of the quantity of a drug which is in such unit form shall be in terms of the numerical count of such units, supplemented, when necessary to give accurate information as to the quantity of such drug in the package, by such statement (in such terms, manner, and form as are not misleading) of the weight or measure of such units, or of the quantity of each active ingredient in each

such unit, as will give such information. (3) The statement of the quantity of a device shall be ex:

pressed in terms of numerical count. (f) A statement of weight shall be in terms of the avoirdu. pois pound, ounce, and grain, or of the kilogram, gram, and milligram. A statement of liquid measure shall be in terms of the United States gallon of 231 cubic inches and quart, pint, fluid ounce, and fluid dram subdivisions thereof, or of the liter, milliliter, or cubic centimeter, and shall express the volume at 68° Fahrenheit (20° Centigrade).
