Sec. 25. As used in this chapter, “misbranded” refers to any of the following:
(1) Any pesticide product if its labeling bears any:
(B) design; or
(C) graphic representation;
relative to the pesticide product or to its ingredients that is false or misleading.
(2) Any pesticide product if any of the following apply:
(A) It is an imitation of or is offered for sale under the name of another pesticide product.
(B) Its labeling bears any reference to registration under this chapter.
(C) The labeling accompanying it does not contain instructions for use that are necessary and, if complied with, adequate for the protection of the public.
(D) The label does not contain a warning or caution statement that may be necessary and, if complied with, adequate to prevent injury to humans and other vertebrate animals.
(E) The label does not bear an ingredient statement on that part of the immediate container and on any outside container or wrapper through which the ingredient statement on the immediate container cannot be clearly read of the retail package that is presented or displayed under customary conditions of purchase. However, a pesticide product is not misbranded under this definition if the size or form of the immediate container or the outside container or wrapper of the retail package makes it impracticable to place the ingredient statement on the part that is presented or displayed under customary conditions of purchase and the ingredient statement appears prominently on another part of the immediate container, outside container or wrapping, or labeling, as permitted by the state chemist.
(F) Any word, statement, or other information required under this chapter or the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (7 U.S.C. 136 et seq.) to appear on the labeling is not prominently placed on the labeling with conspicuousness (as compared with other words, statements, designs, or graphic matter in the labeling) and in terms that make it likely to be read and understood by the average individual under customary conditions of purchase and use.
(G) In the case of an insecticide, nematocide, fungicide, or herbicide, when used as directed or in accordance with commonly recognized practice, it is injurious to humans or other vertebrate animals, vegetation, except weeds to which it is applied, or the individual applying the pesticide.
(H) In the case of a plant regulator, defoliant, or desiccant when used as directed, it is injurious to humans or other vertebrate animals, vegetation to which it is applied, or the individual applying the pesticide. However, physical or physiological effects on plants or parts of plants are not considered to be injurious, if that is the purpose for which the plant regulator, defoliant, or desiccant was applied, in accordance with the label claims and recommendations.
(I) The immediate container does not clearly display the United States Environmental Protection Agency establishment number indicating the specific location where the pesticide product was produced.
