Retailer pays $2M for selling recalled products
A retailer will pay $2 million to settle charges that the company knowingly sold and distributed hundreds of recalled products.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Grand Rapids-based Meijer distributed at least a dozen different recalled products — from toys to vacuum cleaners — through a system it operated with a third-party contractor.
It's against the law to sell or distribute products that have been recalled.
Among the recalled goods: Fisher-Price toddler tricycles, high chairs by Graco Children's Products, Hoover vacuums and box fans by Lasko.
In agreeing to the settlement, Meijer neither acknowledges nor denies the commission’s charges.
