Wal-Mart flunks price accuracy tests, pays $1 million settlement


For five years, state inspectors in Arizona went into Wal-Mart stores to check whether the prices paid at the register matched the price they were supposed to be sold for. The results weren't pretty: Wal-Mart flunked more than half of the 976 inspections.

""In today's tough economy, consumers need accurate price information to comparison shop and decide what to buy with their hard-earned money," Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard said in a statement.
