When things could not get worse, this bankrupt retailer now gets into unexpected trouble after failing to protect its customers.

Rite Aid was going high tech with its loss prevention by using artificial intelligence-based facial recognition surveillance systems from 2012 to 2020, in order to identify customers who may have been engaged in shoplifting or other problematic behavior in its stores, according to a complaint filed in federal court by the Federal Trade Commission.

The complaint, however, charged that Rite Aid “failed to take reasonable measures to prevent harm to consumers, who, as a result, were erroneously accused by employees of wrongdoing because facial recognition technology falsely flagged the consumers as matching someone who had previously been identified as a shoplifter or other troublemaker.”

Now the FTC is seeking to ban Rite Aid from using AI technology.

The FTC on Dec. 19 filed for a stipulated order and permanent injunction in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania banning Rite Aid from using facial recognition technology for surveillance purposes for five years to settle FTC charges that the retailer failed to implement reasonable procedures and prevent harm to consumers in its use of facial recognition technology in hundreds of stores.

The proposed order will require Rite Aid to implement comprehensive safeguards to prevent harm to consumers when deploying automated systems that use biometric information to track them or flag them as security risks.

Rite Aid will also be required to discontinue using any such technology if it cannot control potential risks to consumers.

The drugstore chain will be required to implement a robust information security program, which must be overseen by the company’s top executives, to settle charges it violated a 2010 Commission data security order by failing to adequately oversee its service providers, .

Rite Aid’s procedures subjected consumers to embarrassment, harassment, and other harm, according to the complaint.

The company did not inform consumers it was using the technology in its stores, and it discouraged employees from revealing such information, according to the complaint.

This is a developing story.
