Smart & Final LLC Settlement
Smart & Final LLC Settles For $46,150
In October 2021, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Smart & Final LLC (Smart & Final) of Commerce, California, reached a settlement agreement in the amount of $46,150.
Smart & Final sold, supplied, and offered for sale two noncompliant nonaerosol General Purpose Cleaner products that were manufactured for use in California. The General Purpose Cleaners contained concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that exceeded the standards specified in California Code of Regulations (CCR), title 17, section 94509(a) (17 CCR § 94509(a)). The violation resulted in 2.86 tons of excess VOC emissions in the “General Purpose Cleaner: nonaerosol” category. Additionally, one product did not have a date of manufacture, as required in 17 CCR section 94512(b). To come into compliance, Smart & Final has relabeled and added a date of manufacture to one product. The other product was reformulated in June 2018.
