Jeffrey Telsey pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiring to deal in the blades. The Delray Beach, Fla., man was sentenced last week in Grand Rapids federal court.

Telsey had a legitimate business selling leftover beauty and health products, but mixed in were counterfeit blades imported from China.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Miles Jr. said trafficking in counterfeits products undermines the public's confidence in what they see and buy in stores.

Agents in 2009 seized blades worth $425,000. They also seized a bank account with $400,000.
