Oregon Statutes - Chapter 633 - Grades, Standards and Labels for Feeds, Fertilizers and Seeds - Section 633.055 - Misbranding commercial feed prohibited; rules.

A person may not distribute misbranded commercial feed. A commercial feed is misbranded:

(1) If its labeling is false or misleading in any particular.

(2) If it is distributed under the name of another feed.

(3) If it is not labeled as required by ORS 633.026 and by rules adopted pursuant to ORS 633.006 to 633.089.

(4) If it purports to be or is represented as a feed ingredient or as containing a feed ingredient, unless that feed ingredient conforms to the definition of identity, if any, prescribed by rule of the State Department of Agriculture. In adopting rules under this subsection, the department may take into consideration the commonly accepted definitions approved or authorized by:

(a) The United States and other states.

(b) Other recognized agencies or organizations experienced in such matters, such as the Association of American Feed Control Officials.

(5) If any word, statement or other information required by ORS 633.006 to 633.089 or by rule of the department to appear on the label is not prominently placed thereon with such conspicuousness, as compared with other words, statements, designs or devices in the labeling, and in such terms as to render it likely to be read and understood by the ordinary individual under customary conditions of purchase and use.
