LEGAL : No regulation against reselling recalled toys
No regulation... yet !
In the US, there is no federal law or regulation against reselling recalled toys - a loophole that some legislators are trying to close. Still, eBay, among others, has agreed to try to keep recalled products off the market.
Wal-Mart cash registers block selling recalled toys
Some recalled toys are still on shelves in the United States. A New York Times reporter found a Polly Pocket LimoScene toy on the shelves of a Wal-Mart in Chicago, but when she tried to buy it, the cash register blocked the purchase. She found the toys still on the shelves after three visits.
Wal-Mart says the cash register is a backup to make sure recalled toys are not sold.
Congratulations to Wal-Mart !
