$12,500 in Fines Paid by AutoZone
Between January 2003 and July 2005, AutoZone sold or offered for sale 2,474 containers of Prestone Windshield Melt De-Icer Additive product in non-Type A areas of California, which exceeded the one percent VOC limit for Automotive Windshield Washer Fluids (dilutable) as required in the Consumer Products Regulation. AutoZone had been notified by the manufacturer that the product should not be sold in California. On June 7, 2006, AutoZone settled this case for $12,500.
