Jobber's Wholesale, Inc. Settlement
$55,000 in Fines Paid by Jobber's Wholesale, Inc.
During 2003, Jobber's Wholesale, Inc. sold or supplied non-compliant 1.5-gallon gasoline containers in California that had been imported from China. After an investigation and several attempts to negotiate a mutual settlement, the case was referred to the Attorney General's Office. A civil compliant was filed in June 2005 in Los Angeles County. The parties agreed to resolve the case through a negotiated settlement and the case was settled on March 15, 2006, for $55,000. Jobber's Wholesale paid $5,000 initially and the remaining $50,000 will be paid if additional violations occur within one year.
