§ 3.1-438. (Repealed effective October 1, 2008) Accounting system for distributors; inspection and audit of bo...
The State Milk Commission is authorized and directed to prepare and promulgate a system of accounting designed to show for each distributor of milk and milk products, under the supervision of the Commission, the total purchases by any such distributor of each grade of milk; the total sales by each such distributor and the revenue therefrom, for each grade or class of milk and the quantity thereof. Such accounting system shall be so designed as to show not only total purchases but the respective grades of milk bought as well as total sales and the respective classes or grades of milk sold.
Upon the promulgation of any such system of accounting by the State Milk Commission each distributor of milk and milk products under the supervision of the Commission shall adopt and use such system of accounting. The books and records of each such distributor shall be open to inspection by the Commission or its agents during regular business hours, and shall be audited by it at such regular intervals as shall be prescribed by the State Milk Commission.
It shall be unlawful for any distributor to pay for milk upon any such basis of grade or class lower than that upon which such milk is sold or used by him. Nothing herein shall prevent the sale of a grade or class of milk by a distributor as milk of a lower grade or class. Any such distributor violating any provision of this section or failing or refusing to use the system of accounting herein prescribed or refusing to allow the same to be inspected or audited shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction be punished as provided by law. Each day of violation shall constitute a separate offense and be punishable as such.
