Il­le­gal dis­pos­als by chain al­leged

Los Angeles Times - - Obituaries - — An­drew Blankstein

A pre­lim­i­nary in­junc­tion against Tar­get Corp. al­leges that the re­tail chain il­le­gally dis­posed of haz­ardous con­sumer prod­ucts that were re­turned or dam­aged, Los An­ge­les and state pros­e­cu­tors said Mon­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said they found in Jan­uary 2008 that 5,000 pounds of prod­ucts that could not be sold were sent by L.A.-area stores to the Los An­ge­les Re­gional Food Bank. Ac­cord­ing to in­ves­ti­ga­tors, the ship­ments in­cluded “dam­aged, leak­ing, un­us­able items with flammable, toxic and cor­ro­sive prop­er­ties.”

Com­pany of­fi­cials could not be reached for com­ment.
