(COLUMBUS, OH) -The State of Ohio is showing the stop sign to Ohio Mulch.
The Ohio Department of Agriculture has issued a stop-sale order for a number of two and three cubic feet bags of mulch produced by the Columbus-based company.
The bag may only go up for sale once the company re-bags and re-labels them so that they accurately indicate the minimum amount of mulch they are likely to contain.
The department originally issued a stop-sale on the 1.5 bags the company produced on April 24, making this the second stop-sale issued on Ohio Mulch in less than a month.
The state says recent tests found shortage issues with the two and three cubic feet bags, which led officials to issue the newest penalty to Ohio Mulch.
In addition to replacing the bags with correctly filled and labeled ones, Ohio Mulch also has a state-issued option to donate the faulty products to charity.
