Staples Incorporated Case Settles for $47,000
On December 5, 2015, a case was settled with Staples Incorporated for selling a product named “Krystal Kleer All Season Formula Windshield Washer Fluid -20 °F”, that was subject to the Automotive Windshield Washer Fluid category. The product contained concentrations of VOCs exceeding the 1 percent by weight VOC limit for the Pre-Mixed category in non-Type “A” areas, as well as the 25 percent State standard in the Type “A” areas. The excess VOC emissions for the sales of this product between November 2013 and July 2015 were approximately 1.0 ton. Since it was a second violation, the company paid $47,000 to settle the case.
