All scales used for weighing foodstuffs shall be placed on the front counter and at a distance of not more than three feet from the customer, so that the customer's side of the scales will show the pounds and ounces, whereby the customer may see the weight of the article or commodity being purchased at the time of purchase. No person shall use such scale until it is placed in the proper position. The use of such scale shall be deemed in violation of the provisions of this chapter until the position thereof has been approved and the scales properly tested by the City Sealer. This section in no way makes prepackaging scales illegal when packages are properly labeled as hereinafter provided.
