The Valspar Corporation Settlement
The Valspar Corporation Case Settles for $218,000
Between August 2007 and August 2008, The Valspar Corporation supplied various sizes of Goof Off The Ultimate Remover that contained VOCs in excess of the 20 percent limit for general purpose adhesive removers, Goof Off Graffiti Remover that contained VOCs in excess of the 50 percent limit for graffiti removers, and AFTA Adhesive Remover Cleaning Solvent that contained VOCs in excess of the 4 percent limit for general purpose degreasers to California. The Goof Off product line has since been reformulated to meet ARBs VOC limits. In addition, The Valspar Corporation no longer supplies the AFTA product line to California. The case was settled on August 18, 2009 for $218,000.
