>>I think that's correct. If there were, it would've involved a successful prosecution of an individual who fraudulently claimed that the baby turtle was used for scientific/educational purposes. I don't believe that any person has been convicted under fraudulent circumstances. From what I've been able to find, and most of it was on a HSUS website, most stores caught selling baby turtles are told to cease doing so by the FDA. I'm sure that the HSUS, being an anti-pet organization would've loved to have reported on the "citations prosecutions and successful convictions" that resulted, if there were any to report on. What I've read is here:
>>

I wish I remembered the guys name. Alas, my rescue took in 75 red eared sliders here from a holiday store kiosk selling them in the turtle palm tree death traps. He tried to get out of being charged by having 5 animals independently tested for salmonella, however they came back with both Salmonella and giardia (sp). He was fined, but I can not remember if it was locally or FDA that issued it. He was also shut down in the mall he was selling his turtles. Fines come, but it is rare.
