The Arkansas attorney general filed a lawsuit against Family Dollar after the "presence of rodents and rodent activity" were detected at its distribution facility in West Memphis, Arkansas.
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge alleges in the lawsuit filed Thursday that the company knew about the rodent infestation for "years," but continued allowing unsafe products to be sold in Arkansas and other states.
Rutledge said in a press release that Family Dollar has a "total disregard" for public safety which put the public in danger, in addition to allegedly forcing "hundreds of employees to work in unsafe conditions" at the company's West Memphis, Arkansas, distribution center.
