Device Labels Sausages (May, 1938)

I had no idea decalcomania was a real word. From wikipedia:
“Decalcomania, or décalcomanie, a decorative technique by which engravings and prints may be transferred to other materials, was invented in Russia and introduced into the United States at least as early as 1868.”

Device Labels Sausages
Indelible labels are printed on sausages and other meats packed in natural casings by an automatic machine operating on the decalcomania principle. The device is designed to protect housewives from the substitution of inferior products for well-known brands.
