Every person owning or in charge of any place where food or drink is sold who uses or serves therein imitation cheese, as in this subtitle defined, shall display at all times opposite each table or place of service a placard for such imitation, with the words "Imitation $DTL8@ served here", without other matter, printed in black roman letters not less than three inches in height and two inches in width, on a white card twelve by twenty-two inches in dimensions.

No person shall serve colored oleo, oleomargarine or margarine at a public eating place unless a notice that oleo, oleomargarine or margarine is served is displayed prominently and conspicuously in such place and in a manner as to render it likely to be read and understood by the ordinary individual being served in the eating place or is printed or is otherwise set forth on the menu in type or lettering not smaller than that normally used to designate the serving of other food items or unless each separate serving bears or is accompanied by labeling identifying it as oleo, oleomargarine or margarine, or each separate serving thereof is triangular in shape.

Any person violating any provision of this section shall be guilty of a simple misdemeanor, and the person shall have all licenses issued by the state for the public eating place in which a violation occurred suspended for one year.
