In the case of the samples of Condensed Milk the Analyst certified
them as genuine but in view of a labelling offence proceedings were
taken against the Vendors under the Public Health (Condensed Milk)
Regulations, 1923/53.
The prosecution was on the grounds that the tin was not labelled
so as to give the name and address of the manufacturer or of the dealer
or merchant in the United Kingdom for whom it was manufactured.
The case was dismissed on the grounds that a warranty was pleaded by
the retailing company and accepted by the Magistrates.
