Patrons of the “Food Express” gas station in Tunkhannock may have noticed red “rejected” stickers that were placed on the pumps recently.

These stickers do not mean that the pumps are shorting customers on gas, according Summer Pieretti, of the Department of Agriculture’s department of weights and measures.

Pieretti said that the pumps were rejected for “non-performance related issues,” and that the rejection stickers are used to incentivize the owners to correct the issue.

Nonetheless, consumers can rest assured that the stickers do not indicate any unfair business practices on behalf of the station.
