PARIS — Carrefour SA said sales rose 6.7 percent in the third quarter, but it lowered its operating profit guidance for 2010 due to one-off charges in Brazil resulting from an ongoing audit, expected to have a total impact of 180 million euros, or $251.3 million. Carrefour, the world’s second-largest retailer behind Wal-Mart Stores Inc., posted sales of 25.61 billion euros, or $33.05 billion, in the three months ended Sept. 30, representing an increase of 2.6 percent at constant exchange rates.
