1590                               Laws of Maryland                         Ch. 536

(c) All poultry carcasses and parts and other poultry products
found to be adulterated shall be condemned and shall, if no appeal
be taken from such determination of condemnation, be destroyed
for human food purposes under the supervision of an inspector:
Provided, That carcasses, parts, and products, which may by re-
processing be made not adulterated, need not be condemned and
destroyed if reprocessed under the supervision of an inspector and
found to be not adulterated. If an appeal is taken from the deter-
mination, the carcasses, parts, or products shall be appropriately
marked and segregated pending completion of an appeal inspection,
and the appeal shall be at the cost of the appellant if the Board
determines that the appeal is frivolous. If the condemnation is sus-
tained the carcasses, parts, and products shall be destroyed for food
purposes under the supervision of an inspector.


(a)    Each official establishment slaughtering poultry or process-
ing poultry products solely for intrastate commerce shall have its
premises, facilities, equipment, and operation in accordance with sani-

for the purpose of preventing the entry into or flow or movement
in intrastate commerce of poultry products which are adulterated.

(b)    The Board shall refuse to inspect any establishment whose
premises, facilities, or equipment, or the operation thereof, fail to
meet the requirements of this section.

the Board may require, the information required under paragraph
(1) of Section 4
197-4 of this Act. In addition, the Board whenever it
is practicable and necessary for the protection of the public, may
require nonconsumer packaged carcasses at the time they leave the
establishment to bear directly thereon in distinctly legible form any
information required under paragraph (1).

(b)    The Board, whenever it is necessary for the protection of
the public, may prescribe: (1) the styles and sizes of type to be
used with respect to material required to be incorporated in labeling
to avoid false or misleading labeling; (2) definitions and standards
of identity or composition for articles subject to this Act and stand-
ards of fill of container for such articles not inconsistent with stand-
ards established under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act,
or under the Federal Poultry Products Inspection Act, and there
shall be consultation between the Board and the Secretary of Agri-
culture of the United States prior to the issuance of such standards
to avoid inconsistency between such standards and the Federal

(c)    No article subject to this Act shall be sold or offered for
sale by any person in intrastate commerce, under any name or other
marking or labeling which is false or misleading, or in any container
of a misleading form or size, but established trade names and other
marking and labeling and containers which are not false or mislead-
ing and which are approved by the Board, are permitted.

(d)    If the Board has reason to believe that any marking or
labeling or the size or form of any container in use or proposed for
use with respect to any article subject to this Act is false or mislead-
