Any lot of commercial feed not in compliance with any of the provisions of this chapter or with any of the prescribed rules under this chapter shall be subject to seizure on complaint of the secretary of agriculture and natural resources to a court of competent jurisdiction in the area in which the commercial feed is located. If the court finds the commercial feed to be in violation of this chapter and orders the condemnation of the commercial feed, it shall be disposed of in any manner consistent with the quality of the commercial feed and the laws of the state. However, in no instance may the disposition of commercial feed be ordered by the court without first giving the claimant an opportunity to apply to the court for release of the commercial feed or for permission to process or relabel the commercial feed to bring it into compliance with this chapter.
