Default Package refused by prison and sent back to Walmart

I ordered 3 books for my son through Walmart. He told me yesterday he hasn't received them yet. I checked online today and they were refused by the prison and returned to Walmart. Should my son receive some sort of notice from the prison that the package had been refused and why it was refused?

I doubt they would notify the inmate. I know I had sent my husband his eye glasses like five times and they kept getting refused. I finally sent them to the head of medical to get them to him. I think most places only accept books and other stuff through approved vendors that might be a reason that books would be refused.

Call the mail room and ask them the approved vendors list here in Michigan there's only a few that you can send books from one of them is Amazon but again check with the mail room.

Walmart is one of the few they can receive from in AZ. Amazon is a huge no.

You should be able to call the mailroom and find out. They should also give your LO a contraband/refused mail slip that lists reason. Could be too many things to even speculate why.
