Home Depot Agrees to Pay $5.7 Million Civil Penalty, Maintain Compliance Program for Selling and Distributing Recalled Products

WASHINGTON, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- https://cpsc.gov/Newsroom/News-Releases/2017/Home-Depot-Agrees-to-Pay-5_7-Million-Civil-Penalty-Maintain-Compliance-Program-for-Selling-and-Distributing-Recalled-Products

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that Home Depot U.S.A. Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia, has agreed to pay a $5.7 million civil penalty for selling and distributing previously recalled consumer products. The agreement settles charges that the firm knowingly sold and distributed approximately 2,816 recalled products from 33 separate voluntary corrective actions during a four-year period from August 2012 through November 2016.

Federal law prohibits the sale, offer for sale, or distribution in commerce of a consumer product that is subject to voluntary corrective action, such as a recall, that has been publicly announced and taken in consultation with CPSC.

CPSC staff charged that Home Depot's procedures failed to accurately identify, quarantine, and prevent the sale and distribution of the recalled products. Home Depot sold and distributed the recalled products in its stores through traditional register lanes and special services desks, and through sales for salvage from its reverse logistic centers, internet sales, and donation program.

The hazards posed by the recalled products include, but are not limited to, fire hazards, laceration hazards, and electrocution and shock hazards. 

The recalled products sold and distributed by Home Depot are:

  • HeathCo Motion Activated Outdoor Lights, recalled on July 26, 2012;
  • Legrand Under Cabinet Power and Light Strips, recalled on September 6, 2012, and expanded on May 15, 2014;
  • LG Electronics Electric Ranges, recalled on November 8, 2012;
  • Pramac America LLC Powermate Portable Generators, recalled on November 13, 2012;
  • Wing Enterprises Stepladders, recalled on December 11, 2012;

  • Soleil Portable Heaters, recalled on July 25, 2013;
  • Gree Dehumidifiers, recalled on September 12, 2013, expanded in January 2014, and reannounced in May 2014;
  • HeathCo Motion-Activated Outdoor Lights, recalled on October 30, 2013;
  • RSI Bathroom Medicine Cabinets, recalled on January 16, 2014;
  • HDX/Powermate Two-Gallon Air Compressors, recalled on February 12, 2014;
  • Genie Garage Door Openers, recalled on February 25, 2014;
  • Dyson Bladeless Portable Heaters, recalled on April 1, 2014;
  • Nest Labs Smoke/CO Alarms, recalled on May 21, 2014;
  • Cordelia Shop Lights, recalled on May 22, 2014;
  • Lithonia Quantum® ELM and ELM2 Two-Light Emergency Light Fixtures, recalled on May 28, 2014;

  • Technical Consumer Products LED Down Light Fixtures, recalled on September 8, 2015;
  • Philips Lighting Halogen Flood Lights, recalled on September 10, 2015;
  • Lota Touchless Single-Handle, Pull-Down Sprayer Faucets, recalled on September 10, 2015;
  • Bosch Slim Grinders, recalled on May 11, 2016; and
  • Honda Mini Tillers, recalled on May 25, 2016.

On November 18, 2015, CPSC and Home Depot jointly re-announced the recalls of products that Home Depot sold and distributed after the original recalls had been announced.  

In addition to paying the $5.7 million civil penalty, Home Depot will maintain a compliance program to ensure compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA), including a program for the appropriate disposal of recalled products. Home Depot will also maintain a system of internal controls and procedures.

Home Depot's settlement of this matter does not constitute an admission by Home Depot, or a determination by the Commission, that Home Depot knowingly violated the CPSA.

The Commission voted 4 to 1 to accept the settlement provisionally. Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle voted to accept a lower penalty.
