The recall list brings attention to items that are sold at discount stores, dollar stores, flea markets and thrift stores. The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission specifically warned consumers that certain items produced by Meijer, Inc. were recalled but later resold at discount stores, dollar stores, flea markets, and thrift stores. The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission advises it is illegal to resale these items that have been recalled. However, this practice clearly occurs. Thus, consumers must be aware of this practice and protect themselves.
