§

3314. Detention

When any

livestock product or poultry product or any product exempted from the

definition of a livestock product and from the definition of a poultry product,

or any dead, dying, disabled, or diseased livestock or poultry, is found by any

authorized representative of the secretary upon premises where it is held for

purposes of, or during or after distribution in, intrastate commerce, or is

otherwise subject to the chapter, and there is reason to believe that any

product is adulterated or misbranded and is capable of use as human food, or

that it has not been inspected, in violation of the provisions of this chapter

or of the Federal Meat Inspection Act or the Federal Poultry Products

Inspection Act or the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, or that the product

or animal has been or is intended to be, distributed in violation of any of

these provisions, it may be detained by a representative for a period not to

exceed 30 days, pending action under section 3315 of this title or notification

of any federal authorities having jurisdiction over the product or animal. The

product or animal shall not be moved by any person from the place at which it

is located when detained, until released by the representative. All official

marks may be required by the representative to be removed from the product or

animal before it is released unless it appears to the satisfaction of the

secretary or his or her designee that the product or animal is eligible to

retain the marks. (Added 1985, No. 226 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. June 2, 1986;
