L & T Meat Corporation will pay $6,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $4,500.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,500.00 will go to the Peralta Colleges Foundation to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. This settlement was reached in February, 2017.

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that L & T Meat Corporation failed to bring six of their transport refrigeration units (TRU) into compliance with the applicable in-use performance standards.  ARB documented violations as they related to the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure.  To settle the case, L & T Meat Corporation agreed to the $6,000.00 penalty and to comply with TRU and other ARB programs.
