San Francisco: Taking cognizance of a media report that exposed how Amazon facilitated the trade of unsafe, banned products on its platform, three lawmakers in the US have written to the e-commerce giant's CEO Jeff Bezos, urging him to take swift action to stop the wrongful sale of "deadly" products.

"Unquestionably, Amazon is falling short of its commitment to keeping safe those consumers who use its massive platform," the three Senate Democrats wrote in the letter sent to Bezos on Thursday.

The letter mentioned the recent investigation by the Wall Street Journal that found more than 4,000 items for sale on Amazon's site that "have been declared unsafe by federal agencies, are deceptively labeled or are banned by federal regulators." (IANS)
