The product is in conformity with the contract:
1° if it is suitable for the use generally expected from a similar product and, if so:
- if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and has the qualities the seller presented to the buyer as a sample or model;
- if it has the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect with regard to public declarations made by the seller, by the producer or by his representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;
