It shall be an unlawful practice and a violation of P.L.1960, c.39 (C.56:8-1 et seq.) for any retail food store to accept the return of any groceries and other foodstuffs
purchased by a consumer during, and for 30 days following, a state of emergency declared
in response to COVID-19. A retail food store may accept the return of groceries and other foodstuffs if it
determines, in its sole discretion, that the groceries and other foodstuffs are unsafe
for use or otherwise adulterated within the meaning of R.S.24:5-8 as a result of any manufacturing error or defect. Any groceries or other foodstuffs accepted for return by a retail food store shall
not be offered for resale.
