A. No person shall mislabel any fresh fruit or vegetable, or place or have any false or misleading statement or designation of quality, grade, trade-marks, trade-name, area of production or place of origin on any wrapper or container, or on the label or lining of any container of any fresh fruit or vegetable, or on any placard used in connection with or having reference to any fresh fruit or vegetable or container, bulk lot, bulk load, load, arrangement, or display of fresh fruits or vegetables.
