The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says it has sent letters to retailers telling them to stop price-gouging during the coronavirus pandemic.

Among the big names contacted were Menards, Walgreens and Walmart. The consumer protection agency says it has received dozens of complaints about 16 Wisconsin companies. Items where the state feels prizes have been increased unfairly include toilet paper, cookies, bleach, surgical masks and even pinto beans. N95Sales-dot-com was accused of price gouging on N95 masks.
