DENVER — The Denver-based car parts chain Best Buy has been closed for $101 million in the aftermath of a federal probe that found the company engaged in misleading sales tactics and failing to comply with federal health-and-safety regulations.
The probe was launched after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration uncovered complaints of unsafe manufacturing practices at the company’s facilities.
Best Buy said it was unable to comment on the investigation at this time, and the company said in a statement that it is “reviewing the facts surrounding this matter.”
The investigation was triggered after the Federal Trade Commission accused Best Buy of marketing a car part that was made without proper health and safety certification, a violation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The company said it did not knowingly sell unsafe parts.
