      (1)   No person shall store, sell or transfer for retail purposes any lead-based paint unless the container used in retail trade bears a warning statement which shall be an integral part of the label, shall be placed in a conspicuous place on the immediate container of such paint and shall be printed in letters which are legible and in conspicuous contrast with other printing appearing on the container. The statement shall be in substantial conformance with state and federal laws and regulations and recommended standards of the Federal Hazardous Substances Labeling Act, and shall further conform in wording and type style and size as follows, or shall be an approved equivalent:
