  • § 2691. Meat, poultry, and seafood

    Except for immediate consumption on the premises where sold or as one of several elements comprising a ready-to-eat meal sold by an eating establishment as a unit for consumption elsewhere than on the premises where sold, all meat, meat products, poultry, and all seafoods except mollusks offered or exposed for sale, or sold, as food shall be sold by weight. When meat, poultry, or seafood is combined with or associated with some other food elements to form either a distinctive food product or a food combination, such food product or combination shall be offered or exposed for sale and sold by weight, and the quantity representation may be the total weight of the product or combination, and a quantity representation need not be made for each of the several elements of the product or combination. Mollusks may be sold by weight or volume, but not by count except for oysters in the shell. On ready-to-cook, whole carcass, stuffed poultry, ready-to-cook stuffed poultry roasts, rolls, bars, and logs, and ready-to-cook stuffed poultry products designated by terms of similar import, the label must show the total net weight of the poultry product and, in proximity thereto, a statement specifying the minimum weight of poultry in the product.
