Meijer Fined $2M for Selling Recalled Products
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Wednesday that Meijer, Inc. has agreed to pay a $2 million civil penalty for knowingly selling 12 different recalled products. According to the CPSC, Meijer distributed the products through a system operated with a third-party contractor. The CPSC says that Meijer received information about the recalls, but failed to take action to prevent the distribution of the recalled products. As a result, approximately 1,700 units of the recalled items were resold to consumers between April 2010 and April 2011.
