You know, I got to thinking on this a bit and this whole call for fines seems silly and really counterproductive. It's a tax by a different name and don't our corrupt politicians already get a wee TOO much money to waste as it is? Why not make the penalty fit AND hit Walmart where it hurts?
If they can't handle Chemicals within Missouri and California state laws? Fine...but no fines. Simply prohibit Walmart from selling any similar products or chemicals within those state markets for a set period. 1yr? 2yrs? Whatever for the level of offense.
It would give locals a bump with a time to plan as a bonus, for taking back the market on the given item type. It also punishes Walmart in customers lost to those who haven't shown criminal levels of irresponsibility with handling it. They lose the money and probably far more of it ...but not into the pockets of the corrupt. They just flat lose it, period ...and other stores benefit.

You shouldn't be eating that crap either.
Really, there is no apologizing for these people. We are talking about chemicals which can kill people in certain dosages. When you dump it without a second thought it goes in the water. You are just crapping where you eat. Dumb move if you ask me.
