N.Y. Agriculture & Markets Law Section 71-X


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 regulations 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, any dairy product produced, processed or manufactured outside the United States which he has probable cause to believe is not labeled in accordance with this article or the rules and regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, or which is otherwise misbranded or adulterated, he may seize or quarantine such product. Following such seizure or quarantine the commissioner shall hold a hearing in accordance with the provisions of § 202-B (Seizure and quarantine)section two hundred two-b of this chapter. The determination of the commissioner following such hearing shall be subject to judicial review in the manner and within the time limits set forth therein.
