§

2671. Method of sale of commodities; general

Commodities in

liquid form shall be sold only by liquid measure or by weight, and, except as

otherwise provided in this chapter, commodities not in liquid form shall be

sold only by weight, by measure of length or area, or by count. However, liquid

commodities may be sold by weight and commodities not in liquid form may be

sold by count only if such methods give accurate information as to the quantity

of commodity sold. The provisions of this section shall not apply (1) to

commodities when sold for immediate consumption on the premises where sold, (2)

to vegetables when sold by the head or bunch, (3) to commodities in containers

standardized by a law of this State or by federal law, (4) to commodities in package

form when there exists a general consumer usage to express the quantity in some

other manner, (5) to concrete aggregates, concrete mixtures, and loose solid

materials such as earth, soil, gravel, crushed stone, and the like, when sold

by cubic measure, or (6) to unprocessed vegetable and animal fertilizer when

sold by cubic measure. The Commissioner may issue such reasonable regulations

as are necessary to ensure that amounts of commodity sold are determined in

accordance with good commercial practice and are so determined and represented

as to be accurate and informative to all parties at interest. (Added 1967, No.

102, § 18, eff. April 14, 1967; amended 1991, No. 227 (Adj. Sess.), § 7.)
