New York Agriculture & Markets Law

Sec. § 258-II
Violations


In addition to any civil penalties provided for in this chapter the commissioner may institute such action at law or in equity as may appear necessary to enforce compliance with any provisions of this article and any rules and orders promulgated by the commissioner to carry out the provisions of this article and in addition may apply for relief by injunction if necessary to protect the public interest without being compelled to allege or prove that an adequate remedy at law does not exist. Such application may be made to the supreme court in any district or county as provided in the civil practice law and rules, or to the supreme court in the third judicial district. Whenever the commissioner or his duly authorized representative shall find distributed, offered or exposed for sale within this state, a dry milk powder which has originated from any area outside the continental United States including Alaska and Hawaii that has not been designated in accordance with section two hundred fifty-eight-cc as being disease free or which otherwise is unfit or unsafe for use, and its condemnation is required to protect the public health, he may, in accordance with the procedures set forth in section two hundred two-b of this chapter, seize or quarantine and destroy or denature such product so that it cannot thereafter be used.
