25.42 DETAINED COMMERCIAL FEEDS.
Subdivision 1. Withdrawal from distribution order.
When the commissioner or the
commissioner's authorized agent has reasonable cause to believe any lot of commercial feed is
being distributed in violation of any of the provisions of sections
or of any of the
prescribed rules under sections
, the commissioner or agent may issue and enforce a
written or printed "withdrawal from distribution" order, warning the distributor not to dispose of
the lot of commercial feed in any manner until written permission is given by the commissioner
or the court. The commissioner shall release the lot of commercial feed so withdrawn when
said provisions and rules have been complied with. If compliance is not obtained within 30
days, the commissioner may begin, or upon request of the distributor or license holder shall
begin, proceedings for condemnation.
Subd. 2. Seizure; disposition.
Any lot of commercial feed not in compliance with said
provisions and rules shall be subject to seizure on complaint of the commissioner to the district
court of the county in which said commercial feed is located. In the event the court finds the
commercial feed to be in violation of sections
and orders the condemnation of
said commercial feed, it shall be disposed of in any manner consistent with the quality of the
commercial feed and the laws of the state; provided, that in no instance, shall the disposition of
said commercial feed be ordered by the court without first giving the claimant an opportunity to
apply to the court for release of said commercial feed or for permission to process or relabel said
commercial feed to bring it into compliance with sections
