On May 15, 2009, a case was settled with Alberto-Culver for selling non-compliant FDS Baby Powder Feminine Deodorant Spray. These products contained concentrations of VOCs exceeding the 75 percent limit for Personal Fragrance Products specified in Title 17, CCR, Section 94509(a). The company was making representations on their product packaging which made them subject to the Personal Fragrance Product Category. Alberto-Culver did agree to re-package their product to remove any representation which would make them subject to the Personal Fragrance Product category. The company paid $7,500 in penalties to settle the case.
