Claims for net contents

Claims such as "big litre", "jumbo litre" and "full litre" are unacceptable in labelling and advertising, since they contravene subsection 6(1) of theSafe Food for Canadians Act and paragraph 199(1)(a) of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, which prohibit any qualification of the declared net quantity of a prepackaged product.

Additional information on Qualifiers can be found in Optional Additional Information of the Net Quantity page.
