NJ reaches settlement with Target for baby formula issuesNEWARK, N.J. — Target has agreed to pay New Jersey $375,000 to settle a lawsuit that it sold expired baby formula and charged different prices at the register than advertised.
Attorney General Anne Milgram says the Minneapolis-based retail giant will also establish a senior management position for a "Group Pricing Compliance Specialist." Target also will provide its New Jersey employees with price accuracy training over the next two years.
New Jersey filed suit against Target in 2008 after investigators found problems at 21 of its stores.
The state previously reached settlements over similar allegations with Rite Aid and Duane Reade. Suits are still pending against Wal-Mart and Drug Fair.
