Wal-Mart was found selling two different non-complying windshield washer fluids at their stores in non-type A areas of California beginning in January 2002. One of these products was Super Tech, an in-house brand manufactured for Wal-Mart by SouthWin. The other product was 20/10 DeIcer. Neither product complied with the 10 percent VOC limit or with the 1 percent VOC limit that became effective on December 31, 2002.
