J., alleging that the product had been shipped on or about July 22, 1915, and-transported from the State of Maryland into the State of New Jersey, and charging adulteration and.misbranding in violation of the Food and Drugs Act. The product was labeled: "Asquith Brand Tomato Pulp Made from small tomatoes and fresh tomato trimmings and put up under the most sanitary conditions."
