To any pesticide:


If it is an imitation of or is offered for sale under the name of another pesticide;


If its labeling bears any reference to registration under the provisions of this article unless such reference is required by this article or rules or regulations adopted pursuant thereto;


If any word, statement, or other information required by this article or rules adopted under this article to appear on the labeling is not prominently placed thereon with such conspicuousness, as compared with other words, statements, designs, or graphic matter in the labeling, and in such terms as to render it likely to be read and understood by the ordinary individual under customary conditions of purchase and use;

Directions for use and a warning or caution statement which are necessary and, if complied with, adequate to protect the public and to prevent injury to the public, including living people, useful vertebrate animals, useful vegetation, useful invertebrate animals, wildlife, and land;


The weight or measure of the content, subject to the provisions of article 14 of this title; and
