Fined for sup­ply­ing flammable cush­ions

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

A COM­PANY has been fined £2,500 for sup­ply­ing an Ash­ford store with highly-flammable cush­ions.

Black­pool-based SGI Im­ports pleaded guilty to two counts of sup­ply­ing Home­plus in Beaver Road with dan­ger­ous prod­ucts in a let­ter read out at Ash­ford Mag­is­trates’ Court.

SGI had pre­vi­ously pleaded not guilty to sup­ply­ing 16 pur­ple star and 24 blue flower shaped cush­ions to the Ash­ford busi­ness.

The court heard how all 40 cush­ions had been seized by trad­ing stan­dards last year.

SGI said in a let­ter it had changed its pro­ce­dures.

SGI was or­dered to pay £2,500 on each of the two charges, £1,175 costs and for­feited all the cush­ions.
