Wal-Mart agrees to pay state $775,000 for selling expired infant formula and over-the-counter drugs

Wal-Mart agrees to pay state $775,000 for selling expired infant formula and over-the-counter drugsWal-Mart, following a finding that it sold or offered to sell expired baby formula and non-prescription drugs to consumers, has entered into settlement with the state to pay $775,000 and revise its business practices to comply with state laws and regulations, the state Division of Consumer Affairs announced Tuesday.

The settlement resolves a 2008 lawsuit and follows a ruling by state Superior Court Judge Thomas P. Olivieri in August that the state Office of the Attorney General and the Division of Consumer Affairs had proven four of the eight counts in their lawsuit – including that Wal-Mart had sold or offered to sell infant formula and non-prescription drugs beyond their marked expiration dates and that items on sale scanned at incorrect prices.

The remaining counts, which charged various instances of unconscionable business practices among other violations, were to be the subject of trial that was scheduled to begin yesterday in Superior Court in Jersey City.

Wal-Mart has 54 stores in New Jersey.
