§6112. Labeling of food products containing surimi

A food product may not be sold in this State consisting of or containing surimi unless the packaging containing the food product is clearly and conspicuously labeled or, if there is no packaging, unless a sign is conspicuously displayed, indicating that the product is "imitation lobster," "imitation crab," "imitation" followed by the name of the seafood imitated, "processed seafood," "surimi," "lobster-processed seafood salad," "crab-processed seafood salad" or other terms as approved by the Department of Marine Resources through rules adopted in accordance with Title 5, chapter 375, subchapter II. Any term approved by that department is sufficient to notify the public that the product contains surimi. [1991, c. 378, (AMD).]
