Are you planning a garage sale soon or selling something on ebay?

If so you might want to take a couple of days and read up on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s 24 Page Handbook for Retail Stores and Product Resellers. Or you can ignore it and risk a $100,000 fine from the CPSC.

Thanks to a new government campaign called “The Resale Round Up” it now makes it illegal to sell items that have been recalled. And they are even cracking down at a garage sales.
