7 Hazardous Children’s Products Sold After Recall

The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning consumers that certain recalled products, originally sold at Meijer, Inc., were resold after the recall date due to an error. These recalled products were improperly disposed of by offering them for sale at discount retailers, dollar stores, liquidation firms, flea markets and thrift stores nationwide at various prices. The recalling firms listed below fully complied with the negotiated terms of their original recall.

Consumers should stop using these recalled products immediately and contact the recalling firms listed  to participate in their individual recall programs. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
