Consumer Protection Violations Found

<p>The Consumer Protection Section of the Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets, inspects many different weighing and measuring devices, as well as agricultural products. For the first violation, an official notice is issued and the business must send back a Report of Corrective Action Taken ( RCAT ) detailing how they will correct the problem. If continued problems are found in subsequent inspections, a penalty may be issued and / or other legal action may be taken.</p>
