Section 2-21-28 - Short weight.

If any commercial feed in the possession of or consigned to the purchaser is found by the commissioner to be short in weight, the licensee who manufactures or distributes said commercial feed shall, within 30 days after an official notice from the commissioner, pay to the purchaser a penalty equal to four times the value of the actual shortage. The commissioner, by regulation and with approval of the board may allow reasonable tolerances for short weight due to loss through handling and transportation.
