Shims Bargain, Inc., dba JC Sales Settlement
Shims Bargain, Inc., dba JC Sales, Settles For $3,000
In September 2023, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Shims Bargain, Inc., dba JC Sales (JC Sales), with its principal location in Los Angeles, California, for the company’s violation of the Regulation for Reducing Emissions from Consumer Products (Consumer Products Regulation) as codified in the California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94807 et seq.
CARB staff conducted an investigation that revealed JC Sales sold, supplied, offered for sale or manufactured for use in California, a general purpose adhesive that did not meet the product dating requirement as stated in section 94512(b) of the Consumer Products Regulation.
JC Sales fully cooperated with CARB to resolve this matter and ceased sale of the noncompliant product in California. The penalty amount of $3,000 for the product dating violation will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California’s air quality.
