WASHINGTON (AP) - Midwest retailer Meijer (MY-er) Inc. will pay $2 million to settle charges that the firm knowingly sold and distributed hundreds of recalled products.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Meijer distributed at least a dozen different recalled products - from toys to vacuum cleaners - through a system it operated with a third-party contractor. It’s against the law to sell or distribute products that have been recalled.

Among the recalled goods: Fisher-Price toddler tricycles, high chairs by Graco Children’s Products, Hoover vacuums and box fans by Lasko.

In agreeing to the settlement, Michigan-based Meijer neither acknowledges nor denies the CPSC charges.
