Kmart settles with NJ over expired formula sales


NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey officials say retail giant Kmart has agreed to pay more than $300,000 in penalties after state inspectors found expired infant formula and non-prescription medications being sold at 19 stores.

The Division of Consumer Affairs says Kmart will pay $302,500 in fines and the cost of inspections, as well as donate $25,000 worth of infant formula to charity.

Officials say the retail chain has also agreed to implement meaningful remedial measures for the routine inspection of its merchandise.

State consumer affairs officials say inspectors found a total of 257 packages of infant formula and non-prescription medications that were from nine to 29 months past the expiration date at stores in Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Essex, Gloucester, Mercer, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, and Somerset counties.
