Where's the story.
Clearly it says right there the beans were mislabeled. No ulterior motive. Nosiree.

It did not
say the bags were mislabled. It said they were inaccurately
labled. This implies that the bags might've been labled "castor beans - Peruvian blend
" when in fact they were "castor beans - black Afghanie
" However, if what was in the bags was castor beans (as the article claims was found to be, and instead the bags were labled "RJ-235 connectors" that would be mislabeling.
On the other hand, if the castor beans were discovered to be contained in many tiny white OEM "RJ-235 connectors" retail packages, a gross of which were packaged in bulk packaging bearing the Radio Shack logo with the SKU# and UPC indicating RJ-235 connectors that would be off-label use of labels with deliberate intent to mislead or deceive label readers. The FTC in that case will be all over their butts on that one, because that's called bait'n'switch, misrepresentation and fraud and there's all kinds of laws against that kind of thing.
