APPENDIX
LAW UNDER WHICH THE FOREGOING ORDER IS ISSUED

the spread of contagious and infectious diseases of livestock, and for other purposes.
Approved February 2, 1903 (32 Stat. 792; 21 U. S. C. 111).

SEn 2. That the Secretary of Agriculture shall have authority to make such
regulations and take such measures as he may deem proper to prevent the
introduction or dissemination of the contagion of any contagious, infectious,
or communicable disease of animals from a foreign country into the United
States or from one State or Territory of the United States or the District of
Columbia to another, and to seize, quarantine, and dispose of any hay, straw,
forage, or similar material, or any meats, hides, or other animal products coming

Territory or the District of Columbia in transit to another State or Territory
or the District of Columbia whenever in his judgment such action is advisable

[Extract from "An act making appropriations for the Department of Agriculture for the
fiscal year ending June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and fourteen," approved March 4,
1913 (37 Stat. 832-833; 21 U. S. C. 151-158)].
That from and after July first, nineteen hundred and thirteen, it shall be
unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation to prepare, sell, barter, or exchange
in the District of Columbia, or in the Territories, or in any place under the
jurisdiction of the United States, or to ship or deliver for shipment from one
State or Territory or the District of Columbia to any other State or Territory
or the District of Columbia, any worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harm-
ful yirus, serum, toxin, or analogous product intended for use in the treatment
of domestic animals, and no person, firm, or corporation shall prepare, sell,
barter, exchange, or ship as aforesaid any virus, serum, toxin, or analogous
product manufactured within the United States and intended for use in the
treatment of domestic animals, unless and until the said virus, serum, toxin, or
analogous product shall have been prepared, under and in compliance with
regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Agriculture, at an establishment
holding an unsuspended and unrevoked license issued by the Secretary of
Agriculture as hereinafter authorized. That the importation into the United
States, without a permit from the Secretary of Agriculture, of any virus, serum,
toxin, or analogous product for use in the treatment of domestic animals, and
the importation of any worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harmful virus,
:serum, toxin, or analogous product for use in the treatment of domestic animals,
:are hereby prohibited. The Secretary of Agriculture is hereby authorized
to cause the Bureau of Animal Industry to examine and inspect all viruses,
serums, toxins, and analogous products, for use in the treatment of domestic
animals, which are being imported or offered for importation into the United
States, to determine whether such viruses, serums, toxins, and analogous prod-







ucts are worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harmful, and if it shall appear
that any such virus, serum, toxin, or analogous product, for use in the treat-
ment of domestic animals, is worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harmful,
the same shall be denied entry and shall be destroyed or returned at the expense
of the owner or importer. That the Secretary of Agriculture be, and hereby is,
authorized to make and promulgate from time to time such rules and regula-
tions as may be necessary to prevent the preparation, sale, barter, exchange,
or shipment as aforesaid of any worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harmful
virus, serum, toxin, or analogous product for use in the treatment of domestic
animals, and to issue, suspend, and revoke licenses for the maintenance of
establishments for the preparation of viruses, serums, toxins, and analogous
products, for use in the treatment of domestic animals, intended for sale, barter,
exchange, or shipment as aforesaid. The Secretary of Agriculture is hereby
authorized to issue permits for the importation into the United States of viruses,
serums, toxins, and analogous products, for use in the treatment of domestic
animals, which are not worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harmful. All
licenses issued under authority of this Act to establishments where such viruses,
serums, toxins, or analogous products are prepared for sale, barter, exchange,
or shipment as aforesaid, shall be issued on condition that the licensee shall
permit the inspection of such establishments and of such products and their
preparation; and the Secretary of Agriculture may suspend or revoke any per-
mit or license issued under authority of this Act, after opportunity for hearing
has been granted the licensee or importer, when the Secretary of Agriculture
is satisfied that such license or permit is being used to facilitate or effect the
preparation, sale, barter, exchange, or shipment as aforesaid, or the importa-
tion into the United States of any worthless, contaminated, dangerous, or harm-
ful virus, serum, toxin, or analogous product for use in the treatment of
domestic animals. That any officer, agent, or employee of the Department of
Agriculture duly authorized by the Secretary of Agriculture for the purpose
may, at any hour during the daytime or nighttime, enter and inspect any estab-
lishment licensed under this Act where any virus, serum, toxin, or analogous
product for use in the treatment of domestic animals is prepared for sale, barter,
exchange, or shipment as aforesaid. That any person, firm, or corporation
who shall violate any of the provisions of this Act shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, and shall, upon conviction, be punished by a fine of not exceeding
$1,000 or by imprisonment not exceeding one year, or by both such fine and
imprisonment, in the discretion of the court.
