TJ Maxx Parent Company Fined Millions For Selling Recalled Products

TJX, which owns T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods and Marshalls, has been ordered to pay a multi-million dollar fine for selling recalled products.

TJX is going to have to cough a whopping $13 million after being given a penalty fine for selling items and products that were previously recalled. The news about the fine was announced on Tuesday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), CBS News reports.

“The agreement settles charges that the firm knowingly sold, offered for sale, and distributed approximately 1,200 recalled products from 21 separate voluntary corrective actions during a five-year period from March 2014 through October 2019,” said CPSC.

Some of the recalled items included a hoverboard, watches, portable speakers and more. The commission said the products were recalled over hazardous issues.

“The majority of the post recall sales were products recalled due to the risk of infant suffocation and death including the Kids II Rocking Sleepers, Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, and Fisher-Price Inclined Sleeper Accessory for Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards,” said the commission.

Along with the fine, TJX also agreed to install a compliance program that would ensure no recalled items are ever sold again.
