U.S. Supreme Court

Hutchinson Ice Cream Co. v. Iowa, 242 U.S. 153 (1916)

Hutchinson Ice Cream Co. v. Iowa*

Nos. 40, 50

Argued November 13, 1916

Decided December 4, 1916

242 U.S. 153


Laws forbidding the sale, offering for sale, etc., as "Ice Cream" of any article not containing butter fat in reasonable proportion fall fairly within the state police power.

The fact that the name "Ice Cream," as commonly used, includes many compounds which are entirely wholesome yet contain no cream or butter fat, does not render such legislation arbitrary or unreasonable, but tends rather to support it as serving to prevent the public from being misled in the purchase of a food article of general consumption.

Whether the state may prohibit the sale of wholesome products if the public welfare seems to require such action is a question not involved in these cases.

168 Ia. 1, 245 Pa.St. 554, affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
