This page last reviewed September 28, 2012
In March 2012 the Air Resources Board (ARB) issued Notices of Violation to Walmart Stores, Inc. (Walmart) for offering for sale lawnmowers with non-California certified small off-road engines. Upon further investigation by Walmart and ARB, additional non-California certified lawnmowers were found to have been sold and offered for sale in California. Walmart cooperated in providing documentation for all non-certified mowers that were sold, as well as removing the products from California.
In September 2012 ARB reached a settlement with Walmart that included a one-time payment of $39,750 to the California Air Pollution Fund.
