access to all places of business, mills, buildings and vessels, of whatsoever kind,
used in the manufacture, transportation, importation, sale or storage of any commercial
feeding stuffs and may open any parcel containing, or supposed to contain, any commercial
feeding stuffs and may take therefrom, in the manner prescribed in K.S.A. 2-1009, and amendments thereto, samples for analysis and shall pay the retail price of the
sample or samples procured. Before entering the premises, the representatives of the Kansas department of agriculture
shall make application to party or parties in charge of any manufacturer, importer,
jobber, firm, association, corporation or person who sells, offers, or exposes for
sale or distributes in this state any commercial feeding stuffs.
(b) The secretary or a duly authorized representative thereof, acting as the enforcing
officer, may issue and enforce a written or printed stop sale order to the owner or
custodian of any quantity of commercial feeding stuffs which the secretary or the
duly authorized representative of the secretary determines to be misbranded or adulterated
or contains or may contain any substance injurious to public health or the health
of livestock, poultry or pets or which are sold, offered or exposed for sale in violation
of any of the statutes contained in article 10 of chapter 2 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, or any rules and regulations adopted thereunder. The stop sale order shall prohibit further sale and movement of such commercial
feeding stuffs, except on approval of the enforcing officer, until the enforcing officer
has evidence that the law and rules and regulations have been complied with and issues
a release from the stop sale order. Any stop sale order issued pursuant to this subsection is subject to review in accordance
with the Kansas judicial review act. The provisions of this subsection shall not be construed as limiting the right of
the enforcement officer to proceed as authorized by other provisions of the statutes
contained in article 10 of chapter 2 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto.
