2017 ORS 621.203¹
Condemnation of unfit container and its contents

(1) The State Department of Agriculture shall condemn any container that it finds unfit for use by reason of dirt, rust, open seams or any other condition that may contaminate fluid milk, milk or dairy products or otherwise render them unfit for human use or consumption. The department shall provide by rule the method of plainly identifying condemned containers, which shall include affixing a tag to, or marking on, the container a notice of the fact of condemnation and a brief statement of the reasons therefor.

(2) It shall be conclusively presumed that any fluid milk, milk or dairy product in a container that has been condemned by the department and that bears a condemnation tag or marking is unfit for human consumption. The department shall condemn such fluid milk, milk or dairy product. The condemnation shall be carried out by thoroughly mixing a harmless red coloring matter prescribed by the department with the contents of the container. The department may authorize licensed pasteurizer operators and graders to make the condemnation.

(3) If the container can be repaired, or the reason for the condemnation otherwise removed, the condemnation of the container may be lifted by the department. The department may authorize licensed pasteurizer operators and graders to lift the condemnation of a container when appropriate repairs have been made or the reason for the condemnation has been otherwise removed.
