This page last reviewed January 24th, 2014

A case was settled with Kmart Corporation on January 21, 2014 for selling non-compliant “gift sets” in California that included Country Living Reed Diffuser and Room Sprays. The Room Spray product in the gift set exceeded the 18 percent by weight for “Air Freshener: liquid /pump spray” standard specified in Title 17, CCR, section 94509(a). The products were sold between October 2009 and January 2012 that resulted in 13 pounds of excess VOC emissions attributable to the violation. Because it was considered a second violation of the Consumer Products Regulations in the past five years, Kmart Corporation paid $9,000 to settle the case.
