Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Report: More Than 4,000 Products For Sale On Amazon Were Labeled Unsafe By Federal Regulators”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Thousands of products listed for sale on Amazon that federal agencies declared unsafe or banned were deceptively labeled, The Wall Street Journal found.

The Journal’s investigation found 4,152 products, including 2,000 toys and medications, for sale on Amazon would be banned or correctly labeled on regular U.S. store shelves due to their health risks.

Amazon removed or altered wording for 57% of the listings after the Journal brought attention to their safety risks. Within two weeks, however, at least 130 items with the same policy violations returned to the site, some listed by the same sellers the Journal previously identified.

For months, the @WSJ has been working on an investigation of unsafe products on Amazon. The results are sobering and should change how you shop on Amazon.
