No person, firm, or corporation, or any agent thereof, shall sell, or offer or expose for sale, or have in possession with intent to sell at wholesale, any cold-storage food, unless there shall be placed on each container thereof, in a conspicuous place in full view of the purchaser, a placard with the words "wholesome cold-storage food" printed thereon, in plain uncondensed gothic letters not less than one-half inch in length. In addition, all such food shall be marked with the date when it is withdrawn from such warehouse. There shall also be displayed upon every open container containing such food, in the same manner, in a conspicuous position, in full view of the purchaser, a placard with the words "wholesome cold-storage food" printed thereon, in the same form as described in this section, when such food is sold from such container or otherwise at retail.
The director of agriculture may devise such rules and regulations as may be proper for the sale of fish, meats, or poultry, when labeled "quick-frozen," "frozen," or "frosted," in lieu of the label "wholesome cold-storage food."
