    MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets is now listing on its website businesses that have violated consumer protection regulations that it enforces.

    The agency’s consumer protection division inspects and tests gas pumps, grocery scanners, deli scales and other weights and measures devices. It also inspects the quality and grading of agricultural products like apples, eggs and maple syrup.

    Violators get an official notice and must send back a report detailing the action taken to correct the problem. If problems continue, the business could face a penalty or legal action.

    The agency’s website is www.agriculture.vermont.gov.
