Adulteration of Coffee Act 1718
The Act provided a penalty of 20 pounds "against divers evil-disposed persons who at the time or soon after roasting of coffee, make use of water, grease, butter, or such like material whereby the same is made unwholesome and greatly increased in weight, to the prejudice of His Majesty's Revenue, the health of his subjects, and to the loss of all fair and honest dealers."
The Act was repealed by the Statute Law Revision Act 1958.
