Wal-Mart to Settle Allegations It Overcharged Customers at Some Wisconsin Stores, 6 Jan 2006 [cached]
Customers at several Wal-Mart supercenters were allegedly overcharged for bulk items including sweet potatoes, grapes, and grind-it-yourself coffee, because scales at the check-out registers didn't automatically subtract the weight of the bags from the total as required by state law, said Jim Rabbitt, director of the consumer protection division of the state Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection.
Wal-Mart was given the option to settle before a lawsuit was filed.
State weight inspectors first learned about the problem with the scales in 2003, according to Rabbitt.Wal-Mart was told to correct the problem, but inspectors discovered it again last fall, Rabbitt said.
Wisconsin statutes provide a $1,000 fine for each weights violation.Inspectors tested 25 items at the stores in question, resulting in the $25,000 settlement.
A majority of the settlement money will go to the state's school fund, Rabbitt said.
Wal-Mart corporate has notified all Wisconsin stores to correct the practice, Rabbitt said.
