Meijer, Inc. Complaint - FAULTY PRODUCT on shelf
Last Friday (5/14/10) I purchased a Carbon Monoxide ALARM off the shelf at Meijer WOODHAVEN, presuming it was NEW...I paid the cashier $24.97 and took it home.
I plugged it into the wall socket and checked it by pushing the TEST button, it would NOT work...the package & instructions BOX had been REsealed with scotch tape and rehung for SALE. The purchase code number for this product was 2905400068 on my check-out receipt.
My issue is the cavalier way the RETURN dept people accept returned products...that, in this case could prove FATAL to me & my family...had I not tested it. The product was even a different size that what was depicted on the instructions sheet that accompanied it...the clerks should have noted that when it was RETURNED. They just paid the con artist...and he got a new alarm AND his money back...DANGEROUS CON GAME.
