New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Retail Sale of Halal Food or Food Products
1. Any person who sells or offers for sale in the same place of business meat, meat preparations, meat by-products, poultry or other food or food products that are represented as both halal and non-halal shall indicate in window signs, in block letters at least four inches in height, “halal and non-halal meat sold here” or “halal and non-halal food sold here.” 2. All fresh meat, meat preparations, meat by-products and poultry sold or offered for sale at retail as halal shall be marked on the label when packaged, or by a sign when not packaged, as the case may be. Such words, when marked on a label or a sign, shall be in letters at least as large as the letters of the words on the label or sign designating such meat, meat preparations, meat by-products and poultry as halal.
3. Any person who sells or offers for sale as halal, at wholesale or retail, any meat, meat preparations, meat by-products or poultry shall maintain a record of each purchase from a manufacturer or packer, which shall include, but not be limited to, a bill of sale, and retain all records with respect to the origin of such meat, meat preparations, meat by-products or poultry for a period of two years after the sale to which the records relate, and shall make such records available to the department upon request. Meat, meat preparations, meat by-products and poultry packed off-premises and labeled as halal by the packer thereof shall be exempt from the record keeping requirements of this subdivision, provided that the package contains the name and address of the manufacturer or packer and the name of the person certifying such food or food products as halal.
