T.J.X. to Pay $13 Million Civil Penalties for Selling Recalled Products
WASHINGTON, D.C. – According to a media release published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), T.J.X. Companies Inc. (owner of TJMaxx and other retail stores) will pay a $13 million civil penalty for offering for sale, selling, and distributing dangerous, recalled consumer products.
The company will also maintain a compliance program to make sure that the company's retail store meets its obligations of the law going forward. The settlement agreement satisfies the CPSC's charges that the company deliberately offered for sale, sold, and distributed 1,200 recalled consumer products from March 2014 through October 2019, both online and at the company's brick-and-mortar retail stores in violation of CPSA Section 19(a)(2)(B), and 15 U.S.C. § 2068(a)(2)(B).5.
The recalled consumer products include:
- Bollinger Fitness Resistance Bands
- Bradshaw Int’l Coffee Presses
- Calphalon Cutlery Knives
- Calphalon Pizza Wheels
- Carter's Children Cardigan Sets
- Fisher-Price Inclined Sleeper Accessory for Play Yards
- Fisher-Price Rock' n Play Sleepers
- Glass & Ceramic Drawer Knobs
- Glass Beer Mugs
- HVTM Foldable Lounge Chairs
- Ion Audio Portable Speakers 2
- Ivanka Trump Scarves
- Jimco Bistro Chair
- Kids II Oball Rattles
- Kids II Rocking Sleepers
- Linon Home Foldable Wood Patio Chairs
- MZ Berger Children's Light-Up Watches
- Sharper Image/Frigidaire Mandoline Slicers
- StyleCraft Upholstered Benches
- Swagway Hoverboards
- Swivel Barstools
According to the complaint, the risks posed by the recalled consumer products include, and are not limited to, fire, deaths, burns, explosions, lacerations, and choking. The lawsuit stated that 960 of the post-recall consumer products posed a risk of infant deaths. Those baby products included the Fisher-Price Rock' n Play Sleepers, which were recalled after 30 babies were tragically killed.
Federal law bans the offer for sale, sale, or distribution of consumer products that are subject to recalls that the manufacturer and the CPSC have publicly announced. T.J.X.'s settlement does not form an admission of guilt by T.J.X., or does it create a determination by the CPSC.
