false and misleading and by reason of said statements the article was Ia
so as to deceive and mislead the purchaser since they represented that it con-
tained silver; that it would destroy odors instantly, would cause unpleasant

the odor of stale tobacco smoke, and would create a clean and refreshtg
atmosphere; that it would be an effective antiseptic when sprayed in the sick

inert substance, namely, water, which substance does not prevent, destroy, repel,

thereof were the name and percentage amount of each substance or ingrediedC

1677. Misbranding of Menderth. IT. S. v. Menderth, Inc. Plea of guilty.
Fine, $10. (I. & F. No. 2015. Sample No. 12315-C.)
The labeling of this product bore false and misleading representations regarding
its effectiveness in the control of certain insects and plant diseases and failed to
declare the inert substances present in the article.
On November 19, 1937, the United States attorney for the District of Massachu-
setts, acting upon a report by the Secretary of Agriculture, filed in the district
court an information against Menderth, Inc., trading at Boston, Mass., alleging
shipment by said company on or about May 14, 1937, from the State of Maine into
the State of Massachusetts of a quantity of Menderth, which was a misbranded
insecticide and fungicide within the meaning of the Insecticide Act of 1910.
Misbranding of the article was alleged in that the statements, "Corn Borer

trolling the ravages of the Corn Borer and Ear Worm. The most
results are obtained by placing Menderth directly under and near the

Repeat the dusting as above, as often as new leaves appear. When the stalk
tassels, dust it thoroughly with Menderth; and when the corn approaches ma-
turity and the silk appears, dust the silk also with Menderth to guard against
the ravages of the ear worm. If not checked, ear worms may cause more dam-
age than the borer," "Menderth is not an insecticide, but insects do not like it

not be effective to overcome the diseases of perennials and vegetables as indicated.
The article was alleged to be misbranded further in that it consisted completely
of inert substances or ingredients and the name and percentage amount of each
substance or ingredient present therein were not stated plainly and correctly on
the label; nor did the label bear a statement to the effect that the substances or
ingredients contained in the article were inert.
On March 28, 1939, a plea of guilty was entered on behalf of the defendant
and the court imposed a fine of $10.

1680. Adulteration and minsbranding of mercury oxycyanide tablets and Bar-
doxy Tablets (mercury oxycyanide tablets). U. S. v. C. R. Bard, line.
Plea of guilty. Fine, $150, (I. & F. No. 2094. Sample Nos. 26092-D,
76101-C0.)
This product was adulterated and misbranded because other substances had
been substituted in part for mercury oxycyanide, which it purported to be.
It was misbranded further because of false and misleading claims in the
labeling regarding its sterilizing properties, and because of failure to declare
the inert ingredients present.
On February 24, 1939, the United States attorney for the Southern District
of New York, acting upon a report by the Secretary of Agriculture, filed in the
district court an information against C. R. Bard, Inc., New York, N. Y., alleging
shipment by said company on or about October 14, 1937, and August 10, 1938,
from the State of New York into the States of Pennsylvania and New Jersey,
respectively, of quantities of mercury oxycyanide tablets which were adulter-
ated and misbranded.
The article was alleged to be adulterated in that other substances, namely,
mercuric cyanide, sodium chloride, ammonium chloride, boric acid, and coloring
matter had been substituted in part for merry oxycyanide. ..
The article was alleged to be misbranded in that the statements, (both lots)
"Mercury Oxycyanide" and "For sterilizing surgical instruments. Immerse
instruments for 15 minutes min 1: 3000 solution (1 tablet to quart water). Espe-
cially prepared for the sterilization of catheters, bougies and systoscopes and
other lense instruments," and (one lot) "100 Tablets 0.316 Gm. Each Mercury
Oxycyanide," appearing in the labeling, were false and misleading and by reason
of the said statements the article was labeled so as to deceive and mislead the
purchaser in that they represented that it consisted wholly of mercury oxy.-
cyanide and that it would sterilize instruments, and (in the case of one lot)
that it would be effective in the disinfection of instruments and that each tablet
contained not less than 0.316 gram of mercury oxycyanide; whereas it did not
consist wholly of mercury oxycyanide and would not sterilize instruments, and
in the said lot it would not be effective in the disinfection of instruments and


each tablet thereof contained less than 0.316 gram of mercury oxycyanide.
The article was alleged to be misbranded further in that it consisted partially
of inert substances, namely, substances other than mercuric oxycyanide and
mercuric cyanide, namely, sodium chloride, ammonium chloride, boric acid, and
coloring matter, which substances do not prevent, destroy, repel, or mitigate
fungi (bacteria), and it did not have the name and percentage amount of each

tendere. Fine, $40 and costs. (I. & F. No. 2107. Sample Nos. 29592-D,
29593-D.)
These products were both misbranded because of false and misleading repre-
sentations in the labeling regarding their effectiveness in the control of certain
insects. The Stock and Cattle Spray was misbranded further because the
labeling falsely represented that the article would not contaminate milk, and
because the cans contained less than the volume declared.
On March 14, 1939, the United States attorney for the Western District of
Pennsylvania, acting upon a report by the Secretary of Agriculture, filed in the
district court an information against Milton L. Amshel trading as the Exserco
Products Co., at Pittsburgh, Pa., alleging shipment by said defendant on or
aboUt August 1 and 6, 1938, from the State of Pennsylvania into the State of
Ohio of quantities of Worth Insect Spray and Worth Stock and Cattle Spray,
which were misbranded insecticides within the meaning of the Insecticide Act
of 1910.
The Insect Spray was alleged to be misbranded in that the following state-
ments borne on the can label. "Worth Insect Spray Kills Flies *
Flies Spray room with Worth Insect Spray, spraying upwards in all
directions. Keep doors and windows closed for 10 minutes. Moth and Silver-
flsh: Thoroughly brush the garment, then spray Worth Insect Spray everywhere

cloth, silks, rugs, or fabric of any kind. This Insecticide will kill all larvae
and eggs with which it comes in thorough contact," were false and misleading
and by reason of the said statements was labeled so as to deceive and mislead

flies and would control moth and silverfish; whereas when used as directed

This product was labeled to indicate that it was a compound of chlorine crystals
and possessed the properties of chlorine; whereas it consisted of paradihl
benzene. Its labeling bore false and misleading representations regarding
its effectiveness in the control of moths and falsely represented that it was
nonpoisonous.
On February 5, 1938, the United States attorney for the Western District

Metallic Arsenic not over 0.45%," borne on the labels of the bags containing the

sented that the article contained no more than 0.45 percent of water-soluble
arsenic, expressed as metallic soluble arsenic; whereas it contained more than
0.45 percent of water-soluble arsenic, expressed as metallic soluble arsenic.

1690. Misbranding of San-0-Sen Antiseptie Spray. U. S. v. Palustreptie, Ine.
Plea of guilty. Fine, $100 and costs. (I. & P. No. 2058. Sample No.
8747-D.)
The labels of this product bore false and misleading representations regarding
its effectiveness as an antiseptic, and failed to indicate the inert ingredient
present in the article.
On August 31, 1938, the United States attorney for the Northern District
Illinois, acting upon a report by the Secretary of Agriculture, filed in the district
court an information against Palustrepine, Inc., Chicago, Ill., alleging shipment
by the said company within the period from on or about September 17 to on
about November 2, 1937, from the State of Illinois into the State ofg
of a quantity of San-O-Sen Antiseptic Spray which was a misbrand ede
cide and fungicide within the meaning of the Insecticide Act of 1910,
The article was alleged to be misbranded in that the statement i -
Spray is an effective antiseptic for all household purposes," borne on the
label, was false and misleading and by reason of the said statement, it w$
labeled so as to deceive and mislead the purchaser in that the said statement
represented that it would be an effective antiseptic for all household uses
whereas when used as directed, it would not be an effective antiseptic or
household uses. Further misbranding was alleged in that the article hoisted
partially of an inert substance, namely, water, which substance does not-
vent, destroy, repel, or mitigate insects or fungi, and the name and pereta4
amount of such inert substance were not plainly and correctly stated: ont
bottle labels; nor in lieu thereof were the name and percentage amount of each
substance or ingredient having insecticidal or fungicidal properties, ad
total percentage of the inert substances present in the article stated plainly
and correctly on the label.
The information charged that the article was also misbranded in violation o
the Food and Drugs Act, reported in notice of judgment No. 80640 publish
under that act.
On April 11, 1939, a plea of guilty having been entered on behalf of
defendant, the court imposed a fine of $100 and costs for violation of both acts.
