A recent investigation in New York
shows a general system of frauds in
canned goods. It extends to every de?
scription of fruits, incuts, vegetables and
iish. At this examination, it was found
that, in the case of clams, the solid con?
tents of a one-pound can weighed 84
ounces; two-pound cans contained 1G|J
ounces. Two-pound cans of lobster
showed 24 ounces of solid contents.
Cans of condensed milk turned out 13
ounces to the pound. The contents of
cans of mushroons, after hiving been
drained of water and squeezed dry, did
not exceed Gt ounces to the pound.
Corn beef in cans made the following
exhibit: Six-pound can, C] pounds of
beef; four-pound can, 3 pounds and 7
ounces of beef. All this is the result of
dishonest competition. Canned goods
arc sold by the can, the price graded
upon the honest weight being put into
