188.8.131.52. A retailer who, even occasionally makes wholesale sales to a restaurant operator is prohibited from holding or using, whatever their destination, meat or meat products unless, when they entered his establishment, they bore the stamp mentioned in and applied in conformity with section 184.108.40.206 or were in a package bearing the reproduction of the stamp or a label or sticker copying the stamp.
The prohibition provided for in the first paragraph also applies to any retailer other than the one mentioned in the said first paragraph, but only as to the presence of the stamp on the half or quarter carcasses.
This prohibition does not apply to guinea fowl, pheasant, partridge or quail meat, nor to unskinned and uneviscerated hares.
For the purposes of this section, only the inspection marking provided for and applied in conformity with Meat Inspection Regulations has the same force and validity as the stamp.
