AS 45.75.225. Advertising Packages For Sale.

(a) When a commodity in package form is advertised in any manner and the retail price of the package is stated in the advertisement, there shall be closely and conspicuously associated with the statement of price a declaration of the basic quantity of contents of the package as is required by law or regulation to appear on the package.

(b) When the law or regulation requires a dual declaration of net quantity to appear on the package, only the declaration that is required to appear first and without parentheses on the package need appear in the advertisement.

(c) There may not be included as part of the declaration required by this section such qualifying terms as "when packed," "minimum," "not less than," or other terms of similar import nor terms qualifying a unit or weight, measure, or count such as "jumbo," "giant," "full," which tend to exaggerate the amount of commodity in the package.
