     (a)  pass without objection in the trade under the contract description; and

     (b)  in the case of fungible goods, are of fair average quality within the description; and

     (c)  are fit for the ordinary purposes for which such goods are used; and

     (d)  run, within the variations permitted by the agreement, of even kind, quality and quantity within each unit and among all units involved; and

     (e)  are adequately contained, packaged, and labeled as the agreement may require; and

     (f)  conform to the promises or affirmations of fact made on the container or label if any.

(3)  Unless excluded or modified (§ 47-2-316) other implied warranties may arise from course of dealing or usage of trade.
