bede-pokemon.com bedePokemon.com is one of the largest online retailer of Pokémon themed toys and accessories, and has the largest collection of Pokémon-themed items on the web.
In 2018, it was the second largest online seller of Pokémon branded accessories after Amazon.
However, the company is also one of many major brands that have come under scrutiny for selling products that do not meet their strict safety standards, including toys with child safety features that are not tested on children.
It’s no surprise that the company has recently faced accusations of using child labor and child-related products in its products.
The company also has a longstanding history of violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and is currently under investigation for using a child-labor scheme to recruit children to work for its products and pay them in exchange for being part of its advertising campaigns.
Recently, the CEO of Bede, David Epp, has announced that he plans to close the company.
In a letter sent to employees, Epp said that his company is taking steps to address these concerns and is working to remove products from the marketplace that violate COPPA rules.
“We believe this is a critical time for our company to address our long-standing policy of not using any product with children in its marketing,” Epp wrote.
“As we continue to take actions to mitigate the impact of COPPA, we have reached out to many partners in the community to share our thoughts and support the ongoing dialogue.”
In a statement to News24, the COPPA Working Group said that it is “aware of and actively working with the CEO and Bede.
The group has been in communication with the FTC regarding these matters and will continue to monitor developments closely.”
“This action is an important step in our ongoing commitment to ensure the safety of our products and our consumers,” the statement continued.
“The Working Group will continue its work to protect children’s online safety while also ensuring that all online retailers adhere to the COPA and COPPA-compliant online content policies.
This effort will also help us address our longstanding issues with inappropriate use of child labor in the production of our goods.”
The FTC declined to comment on the investigation.
While the company’s CEO has announced plans to retire, Epps said that the decision will not affect the company or its business.
“I don’t know why we would do that,” he said.
“What I do know is we will continue in the pursuit of our mission to deliver a great product and experience for children.”
A spokesperson for Bede told News24 that they are currently evaluating the company and will provide more information in the coming weeks.
