TJX Companies Inc. agreed to pay a $13 million civil penalty to settle charges that it sold and distributed more than 1,000 previously recalled consumer products for five years, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The majority of the products had been recalled "due to the risk of infant suffocation and death," according to the CPSC.
This includes the Kids II Rocking Sleepers, Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, and Fisher-Price Inclined Sleeper Accessory for Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards, all of which were sold at the company's brick-and-mortar retail stores including T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods and online.
