Electrolux Home Products has agreed to pay U.S. $687,781.77 to settle claims that it defrauded the U.S. Customs Service from 1996 to 2001, the U.S. Justice Department announced. Electrolux Home Products, located in Augusta, GA, U.S., was formerly Frigidaire Home Products. The civil settlement resolves allegations that Electrolux defrauded the government by failing to declare the value of certain tooling molds, assembly labels, and parts that it provided to overseas manufacturers on entry summaries it filed with the Customs Service. The allegations arose from a lawsuit filed by Jay Weatherford, a former customs compliance officer of Electrolux, under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act, a federal law that allows private individuals to sue on behalf of the U.S.
