The agency announced Tuesday that the products were improperly disposed of by offering them for sale at discount retailers, dollar stores, liquidation firms, flea markets and thrift stores nationwide. The products include children’s lamps and toys, a sling used to hold a baby as well as vacuums.

The commission says an error was to blame for the items being resold.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday by The Associated Press with Grand Rapids-based Meijer.

The commission says people should stop using the recalled products immediately and contact companies involved in the recalls.
