Honest weights and measures


One who sells products by weight or volume is obligated to make sure that his receptacles and weights are accurate. This is not dependent on who the consumer is, or what the consumer would accept.

Ahus a merchant is not even allowed to keep inaccurate weights or receptacles around; this is a biblical prohibition.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 231:1, 3)

Have a great day,
