(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 by section 2-316, other implied warranties may arise from course of dealing or usage of trade.
