NATURALLY CONTAINING MELATONIN SHALL BE EXEMPT FROM  THE  PROVISIONS  OF
THIS SECTION.
  2. EVERY PERSON, PARTNERSHIP OR CORPORATION ENGAGED IN THE RETAIL SALE
OR  RENTAL  OF  FOOD PRODUCTS SHALL STORE AND DISPLAY SUCH FOOD PRODUCTS
CONTAINING MELATONIN IN A LOCATION DESIGNATED FOR PERSONS OVER  THE  AGE
