As of February 3rd all eBooks offered for Amazon Kindle that have been reported to include typos, formatting issues, or other mistakes that lead to a poor reader experience will be removed from Amazon until the mistakes in question have been fixed. Readers attempting to purchase a title that has been reported to contain errors will be confronted with a message stating “Item under Review”, and the title will not be available for purchase.

What this means for you: Finding a great editor and proper formatting of your eBook just became even more important. There are a variety of repercussions here, including the failure of a marketing plan if your book is taken down in the middle of a paid promotion.
However, this is good news. The market is saturated with sub-standard books which will hurt the overall marketplace. There needs to be some form of quality control.

This is one of many reasons why you need a publisher such as Empire Publishing to professionally produce your book.
