The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture announces changes to the complicance seals on gas pumps and scales. Recent changes to the state's budget combined fuel quality, pump safety and pump accuracy inspections from two different teams into one Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Agency.
“With the new seal, consumers will know exactly when the equipment was tested, which is a big change from our previous system of color-coding the stickers by year,” said Sandy Chalmers, Division Administrator of Trade and Consumer Protection in a press release. “Having the weights and measures complaint number prominently placed on the sticker will also be convenient for consumers who have issues with their transactions at the pump or in the store.”
The new stickers will replace the outdated color-coding system formerly used in Wisconsin and clearly display the last date of inspection. The new stickers will also include a prominent phone number where customers with concerns can reach the department directly.
