TJX to Pay $13 Million for Letting Recalled Products Re-enter Commerce

On August 5, 2022, the Consumer Product Safety Commission published in the Federal Register (87 FR 48004) The TJX Companies, Inc.

SUMMARY: The Commission publishes in the Federal Register any settlement that it provisionally accepts under the Consumer Product Safety Act. Published below is a provisionally accepted Settlement Agreement with The TJX Companies, Inc., containing a civil penalty in the amount of $13 million, subject to the terms and conditions of the Settlement Agreement.

According to the CPSC complaint: "TJX sold, offered for sale, and distributed Recalled Products because TJX failed to implement adequate procedures to accurately identify, quarantine, and prevent the sale, offer for sale, and distribution of the Recalled Products. The deficiencies in TJX's reverse logistics and compliance programs allowed Recalled Products to reenter commerce."

DATES: Any interested person may ask the Commission not to accept this agreement or otherwise comment on its contents by filing a written request with the Office of the Secretary by August 22, 2022.
