(Tue, 02 Mar 2010 22:40:00 GMT)

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today that Daiso Holding USA Inc., Daiso Seattle LLC, of Seattle, Wash. and Daiso California LLC, of Hayward, Calif. have agreed to pay a $2.05 million civil penalty and stop importing children’s products and toys into the United States. Due to alleged violations of federal safety laws, the company must now demonstrate to the Commission that it has sufficient knowledge of and is in compliance with CPSC safety standards and testing requirements.

I didn’t even know we had Daiso’s in the US, stores where you can find amazing things at very cheap prices. I know them from Qatar, where there is a Daiso at Hyatt Plaza, and I also think there is one in Kuwait.
