  (1)  Unless each container and subcontainer of eggs is marked with the full, correct and unabbreviated designation of size and quality of the eggs therein, according to the standards established by the director, together with the name and address of the producer, dealer, retailer, or agent by or for whom the eggs were graded or marked;

  (4)  Which are deceptive by any arrangement of the contents of any container, or subcontainer, or of any lot, load, or display, in which the eggs in the outer layer or in any portion exposed to view are in quality, size, condition, or in any other respect so superior to those in the interior or unexposed portion as to materially misrepresent the contents or any part thereof as to size, quality, condition, or any other respects;

  (5)  Unless designations of size and quality upon containers and subcontainers of eggs shall be plainly and conspicuously marked in boldface type letters on a contrasting background of (a) not less than three-eighths of an inch in height on the outside top face of each container holding less than fifteen dozen eggs, and (b) not less than two inches in height on one outside end of any oblong container holding fifteen dozen or more eggs, and on one outside side of any other container holding fifteen dozen or more eggs.
