Ohio Mulch denies that buyers are shorted

The state of Ohio is investigating whether Ohio Mulch is selling bags of its product that weigh less than specified on the packaging. The company is facing the same situation in Michigan, where state officials have halted the sale of some Ohio Mulch products.

The state of Ohio is investigating whether Ohio Mulch is selling bags of its product that weigh less than specified on the packaging.

The company is facing the same situation in Michigan, where state officials have halted the sale of some Ohio Mulch products. While they investigate, Ohio officials have not issued such an order.

Ohio Mulch disputes the Michigan order, disagreeing with the state�s testing procedures and the standards it follows, a spokesman for the company said.

The Michigan order prohibits the sale of various Ohio Mulch products that are sold under the Longer Lasting and Pro�s Choice labels.

Michigan officials said they checked more than 200 bags of mulch produced by UMS of Columbus, the wholesale arm of Ohio Mulch. Only 14 of the 200 bags contained the declared net content, they said. The vast majority were �grossly short,� said Jamie Clover Adams, Michigan�s director of agriculture and rural development, in a statement.

Ohio Mulch follows the National Institute of Standards and Technology standards, which are different from Michigan�s, said Gene Pierce, a spokesman for the company.

�We�ve done that for 30 years in business,� he said. �We are not the only mulch company that disagrees with the Michigan testing standards.�

The issue �doesn�t have anything to do with quality,� Pierce said. �It has to do with testing procedures for the volume of the mulch. One of the issues is, ... you might have bags sitting for nine months. There�s water saturation that takes place. There�s compaction that takes place.�

Michigan-based retailer Meijer has pulled the Ohio Mulch products from its stores, including those in Ohio, a spokesman for Meijer said in an email.

�Meijer was notified of a labeling issue with Pro�s Choice Golden Trophy mulch, which is supplied by Ohio Mulch,� a Meijer official said.�We are isolating all product affected by this labeling issue.No product is currently available for consumers to purchase.�

State of Ohio officials ordered 700 bags of the mulch on March 31 after receiving complaints from consumers that month.

�Our plan is to go back out this week,� said Brett Gates, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Agriculture�s division of weights and measures. �For testing to be accurate, mulch has to be dry."

Since the testing began, Ohio Mulch �has been working days, nights and weekends to try to resolve the differences or any confusion,� Pierce said.

�If any central Ohio customers believe they have a bad bag of mulch, they can take it and exchange it at any Ohio Mulch retail location.�

The mulch should be the brands covered under the order, he said.

A spokeswoman for Michigan�s Agriculture Department said the agency routinely looks at packages � of all types and sizes to ensure compliance with the state�s weights and measures law. This problem was identified as part of that routine work.�

The investigation in Michigan, as in Ohio, is �open and ongoing,� said Jennifer Holton, the spokeswoman. �We are working with both the company and impacted retailers to identify a solution,� she said.
