 MADISON -- Roundy's supermarkets Inc. of Milwaukee paid a civil forfeiture settlement of $43,022.50 for violations all over Wisconsin of price scanner inaccuracies and signage issues.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection ran a statewide inspection of 43 Roundy's stores in October of 2012. The department ordered inaccurate prices to be corrected, and then returned on the second day to ensure the corrections had been made.

There were several instances of stores not correcting the pricing mistakes when they returned. There were a total of 158 overpriced items.

Another big issue was that in many stores there were not posted signs to let customers know that they can receive a refund if they are not charged the lowest advertised price.

Roundy's did not admit to violating any laws.
