Texas Agriculture Code
Sec. § 101.015
Settlement on Grade and Quality


(a)

Except as otherwise provided by this section, a licensee or a person required to be licensed shall settle with the producer or seller of perishable commodities on the basis of the grade and quality that is referred to in the contract under which the licensee or person required to be licensed obtained possession or control of the perishable commodities.

(b)

If the perishable commodities have been inspected by a state or federal inspector in this state and found to be of a different grade or quality than that referred to in the contract, the licensee or person required to be licensed shall settle with the producer or seller of the perishable commodities on the basis of the grade and quality determined by the inspector.

(c)

This section does not prevent parties, instead of an inspection, from agreeing in writing that the grade or quality of the perishable commodities were different from that referred to in the contract.

(d)

Failure of a licensee to settle with a producer or seller on grade and quality in the manner provided by this section is a ground for revocation of the licensees license.
