HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Yes. Unfortunately, if what you are selling goes to a state that prohibits the product you, as the 3rd party, can be fined.An attorney general may accept an assurance of discontinuance of any act or practice deemed in violation of any of that state's laws from any person engaging in or who has engaged in such act or practice (That would be you?). Any such assurance shall be in writing and be filed with and subject to the approval of the superior court of the county in which the alleged violator resides or has his, her, or its principal place of business. Such assurance of discontinuance shall not be considered an admission of a violation for any purpose.
The NY Statute at this link specifically states the following:(c) Where an agreed judgment, stipulation, decree, agreement to settle, assurance of discontinuance or other legal instrument resolves (1) any claim or any cause of action asserted by a state agency or a state official or employee acting in their official capacity and (2) any claim or cause of action asserted by one or more foreign jurisdictions or third parties, paragraph (a) of this subdivision shall only apply to the resolution of the claim or cause of action asserted by the state agency, official, or employee.
