Posted on Monday, October 17th, 2016 at 7:43 pm    

Best Buy recently agreed to settle a $3.8 million civil penalty after it was confirmed that the company was selling and distributing electrical products that were part of a recall.

According to the charges, Best Buy deliberately distributed and sold 16 kinds of recalled devices and appliances to consumers, a total of approximately 600 recalled products. Best Buy assured federal authorities that they would take steps to prevent the sale of products under recall, but allegedly continued to sell them. 

Businesses are prevented by the law from selling or distributing products that are covered by any kind of recall.
