  196.710.  Emulsified cream and filled milk prohibited. — It shall be unlawful to use the article known as emulsified cream in milk, or in any milk product, or any purpose whatsoever.  It is hereby declared that filled milk, and emulsified cream as herein defined, are adulterated articles of food injurious to the public health and its sale constitutes a fraud upon the public.  It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to manufacture or ship or deliver to any person within this state any filled milk or emulsified cream.


(RSMo 1939 § 14064)

Prior revision: 1929 § 12411

(1940) This section forbids sale of filled milk only if the resulting product is in imitation or semblance of milk, cream or skim milk. Thus wholesome and nutritious product under label stating nature of product and that it is "not to be sold for evaporated milk" may be sold without violating this section.  State ex rel. McKittrick v. Carolene Products Co., 346 Mo.  1049, 144 S.W.2d 153.
