§Section 50.1 Carnivorous Marine Gastropods Hazardous for Human Consumption

When the commissioner, or the commissioner's designee authorized to designate shellfish lands as uncertified, determines that carnivorous gastropods may be hazardous for use as food for human consumption, due to the presence of marine biotoxins, he shall take such action as he deems necessary to protect the public health and welfare. The commissioner, or commissioner's designee authorized to designate shellfish lands as uncertified, may prohibit activities such as, but not limited to, the taking, possessing, processing, packing, transporting, offering or exposing for sale carnivorous gastropods from areas that are designated as uncertified for the harvest of shellfish pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 47.4 due to the presence of marine biotoxins in shellfish. The commissioner may advise the general public, the industry and public health officials that carnivorous gastropods may be hazardous for use as food.
