(a) All labels of consumer commodities, as defined by this Article, shall conform
with the requirement for the declaration of net quantity of contents of section 4
of the Federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (15 U.S.C. 1451, et seq.) and the regulations promulgated pursuant thereto: Provided, that consumer commodities
exempted from such requirements of section 4 of the Federal Fair Packaging and Labeling
Act shall also be exempt from this subsection.
(b) The label of any package of a consumer commodity which bears a representation
as to the number of servings of such commodity contained in such package shall bear
a statement of the net quantity (in terms of weight, measure, or numerical count)
of each such serving.
(c) No person shall distribute or cause to be distributed in commerce any packaged
consumer commodity if any qualifying words or phrases appear in conjunction with the
separate statement of the net quantity of contents required by subsection (a) of this
section, but nothing in this section shall prohibit supplemental statements, at other
places on the package, describing in nondeceptive terms the net quantity of contents:
Provided, that such supplemental statements of net quantity of contents shall not
include any term qualifying a unit of weight, measure, or count that tends to exaggerate
the amount of the commodity contained in the package.
