N.Y. Agriculture & Markets Law Section 50-I
Labeling of melloream and vegetable oil blends


Whenever the brand name of melloream or a vegetable oil blend, as defined in section fifty-f, appears on the container so conspicuously as to be seen under customary conditions of purchase, there shall immediately and conspicuously precede or follow the brand name or product designation without intervening written, printed or graphic matter in letters at least one-third of the size of the brand name and on a contrasting background, any one of the following statements: “melloream,” “a vegetable blend,” “a vegetable oil product,” “not a dairy product,” and the words “milk,” “cream,” “half and half,” or “a mixture of milk and cream” shall not be used on the package label of melloream or vegetable oil blends except to the extent that there shall also appear on the label an accurate list of ingredients. In the event that a product under this section shall contain an ingredient which has been derived from milk or a milk by-product or during its formation has used milk or a milk by-product, the ingredient labeling shall after specifying the name of the ingredient, place in parentheses the words “milk derived”. Persons or corporations offering such products for sale shall upon request by the commissioner submit to him evidence in support of any nutritional claims made for such products through advertising, labeling or public announcement, and failure to submit such evidence or to revise such claims in the manner suggested by the commissioner shall be presumed to be a misbranding of said products within the meaning of § 201 (Misbranding of food)section two hundred one of this chapter.
