One week ahead of big event, Amazon issues refunds for some eclipse glasses

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Online retailer Amazon has had to issue recalls on some solar eclipse glasses after the third-party sellers could not verify the authenticity of the product.

Notices came via email over the weekend, reported Portland, OR news station KGW, who said their photographers received the note for their solar lens filter.

The company's statement reads:

Out of an abundance of caution and in the interests of our customers, we asked third-party sellers that were offering solar eclipse glasses to provide documentation to verify their products were compliant with relevant safety standards.
