(1) The State Department of Agriculture, as often as necessary to provide adequate protection, shall weigh or measure and inspect packages or amounts of commodities sold, offered or exposed for sale, or in the process of delivery, to determine whether they contain the amounts represented and whether they are sold, offered or exposed for sale in accordance with ORS 618.010 (Definitions) to 618.246 (Sale by weight required for certain food products). If such packages or amounts of commodities are found not to contain the amounts represented, or are found to be sold, offered or exposed for sale in violation of ORS 618.010 (Definitions) to 618.246 (Sale by weight required for certain food products), the department may order them withheld from sale and may so mark or tag them.

(2) In carrying out the provisions of this section, the department may employ recognized sampling procedures under which the compliance of a given lot of packages will be determined on the basis of the result obtained on a sample selected from and representative of such lot.

(3) No person shall:

(a) Sell, offer or expose for sale, in intrastate commerce, any package or amount of commodity that has been ordered withheld from sale and marked or tagged as provided in this section until such package or amount of commodity has been brought into full compliance with all the requirements of ORS 618.010 (Definitions) to 618.246 (Sale by weight required for certain food products); or

(b) Otherwise dispose of any package or amount of the commodity that has been ordered withheld from sale and marked or tagged as provided in this section and that has not been brought into compliance with the requirements of ORS 618.010 (Definitions) to 618.246 (Sale by weight required for certain food products), in any manner, except with the specific approval of the department.
