Section 8-17-43 - Mixture or substitute to be marked and sold as such.

(a) No person shall sell or take orders for sale and delivery within this state any compound or mixture of linseed oil, raw or boiled, with other products, except as provided in this article, or any product which is intended to be used as a substitute for linseed oil (raw or boiled) unless it is exposed for sale and sold under the name "substitute for linseed oil."

(b) If the words "linseed" or "flaxseed" are used other than in the name, the true name of each and every ingredient of such product shall also appear, giving preference of order to the ingredients present in the greater proportion; but all letters used in naming the ingredients shall be of the same size and color, using the style of type as hereinafter specified.

(c) Each tank car, tank, barrel, keg, can, jug, or vessel, both wholesale and retail, and all storage receptacles containing such product, shall be distinctly and durably marked in a conspicuous place using the English language and kind of type as hereinafter specified, giving the name under which it is sold, the names of ingredients when required and the name and place of business of the manufacturer thereon in continuous list with no intervening matter, using ordinary bold-face capital letters not less than 60 points in size, and there shall be such a contrast between the color of the type and the background of the label as to render the same easily and plainly legible.
