Tractor Supply Company Settlement
Tractor Supply Company Settles For $3,000
In July 2023, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Tractor Supply Company (TSC), with its principal location in Brentwood, Tennessee, 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 94507, et seq.
CARB staff conducted an investigation that revealed TSC sold, supplied, offered for sale or manufactured for use in California Windshield Washer Fluid (premixed) category products containing concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that exceeded the standards specified in California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 94509(a).
TSC cooperated fully with CARB to resolve this matter. To come into compliance, TSC is no longer offering the noncompliant windshield washer fluids for sale in Type “A” and Nontype “A” areas of California. The penalty of $3,000 for 0.16 tons of excess VOC will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California’s air quality.
