§ 201-b. Retail sale of kosher food or food products. 1. Any person
who sells or offers for sale in the same place of business meat, meat
preparations, meat by-products, poultry or other food or food products
that are represented as both kosher and non-kosher shall indicate in
window signs, in block letters at least four inches in height, "kosher
and non-kosher meat sold here" or "kosher and non-kosher food sold
here."

2. All fresh meat, meat preparations, meat by-products and poultry
sold or offered for sale at retail as kosher shall be marked on the
label when packaged, or by a sign when not packaged, with the words
"soaked and salted" or "not soaked and salted," as the case may be. Such
words, when marked on a label or a sign, shall be in letters at least as
large as the letters of the words on the label or sign designating such
meat, meat preparations, meat by-products and poultry as kosher.

3. Any person who sells or offers for sale as kosher, at wholesale or
retail, any meat, meat preparations, meat by-products or poultry shall
maintain a record of each purchase from a manufacturer or packer, which
shall include, but not be limited to, a bill of sale, and retain all
records with respect to the origin of such meat, meat preparations, meat
by-products or poultry for a period of two years after the sale to which
the records relate, and shall make such records available to the
department upon request. Meat, meat preparations, meat by-products and
poultry packed off-premises and labeled as kosher by the packer thereof
shall be exempt from the record keeping requirements of this
subdivision, provided that the package contains the name and address of
the manufacturer or packer and the name of the person certifying such
food or food products as kosher.
