WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Michaels Companies Inc. <MIK.O> has agreed to pay $1.5 million in a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department, the bureau announced on Tuesday, after allegations that the craft supply retailer did not report information in a timely manner to the Consumer Product Safety Commission about a large glass vase that injured customers.

Michaels did not admit that it violated the law in settling the case, the department said.
