That’s how many times in the last three years that Amazon has been ordered to stop selling illegal pesticides on its online marketplace. Some of the products even claim to kill viruses. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a "stop-sale" order on Jan. 7 for Amazon to remove listings for about a dozen products that posed a health risk to people and pets. The EPA also said Amazon had committed about 4,000 violations of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act between 2013 and 2018 because it allowed third-party vendors to sell and distribute products that the agency hadn't evaluated.

Today's Quote/Unquote:

As we have for the past year, we’ll continue to invest in our team’s pay and benefits so they can take care of themselves, each other and our guests."

Target is not requiring employees to get vaccinated.
