Decided January 7, 1919
248 U.S. 285
As respects domestic retail sale of secondary packages, or the contents thereof, out of the original packages in which they were imported in interstate commerce, state laws forbidding sale of food articles containing benzoate of soda are not inconsistent with the commerce

The case is stated in the opinion.
