  • § 2675. Advertising packages for sale

    Whenever a commodity in package form is advertised in any manner and the retail price of the package is stated in the advertisement, there shall be closely and conspicuously associated with that statement of price a declaration of the basic quantity of contents of the package as is required by law or regulation to appear on the package. When fruit packaged, graded by the packer and sold by count is advertised, the advertisement must state the size. In connection with the declaration required under this section there shall be declared neither the qualifying term "when packed" nor any other words of similar import, nor any term qualifying a unit of weight, measure, or count (for example, "jumbo," "giant," "full," and the like) that tends to exaggerate the amount of commodity in the package. (Added 1967, No. 102, § 22, eff. April 14, 1967; amended 1971, No. 69, § 6, eff. April 15, 1971.)
