The presence of added water in raw or pasteurized milk constitutes adulteration. The violative level for added water in either raw or pasteurized milk is equal to or higher than 3% when converted from a milk cryoscope reading on the Hortvet or Centigrade scale when tested in accordance with the Standard Methods for the Examination of Dairy Products. After two occurrences of adulterated milk within a six-month period, the plant or producer shall show cause and reason for the addition of water. After a third occurrence, the Department will institute administrative proceedings to revoke the plant or producer's permit.
