FunkAway, Inc. Settlement
FunkAway, Inc. Settles For $12,000
In February 2023, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with FunkAway, Inc. (FunkAway), with its principal location in Lake Forest, Illinois, in the amount of $12,000 for the company’s violation of CARB’s air quality regulations.
An investigation conducted by CARB staff showed that FunkAway failed to meet the volatile organic compound (VOC) limit requirements for a fabric refresher product. CARB documented violations as they related to the Consumer Products Regulation (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 17, § 94500 et seq.).
To settle the case, FunkAway agreed to the penalty of $12,000. The penalty amount will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality. Terms of the settlement include a requirement that FunkAway reformulate the product in violation and be more attentive in ensuring compliance of its future products. FunkAway fully cooperated with CARB to resolve this matter.
