$22,000 in Fines Paid by Royal Oak Enterprises, LLC

This page finalized January 1, 2008


On September 26, 2008, Royal Oak Enterprises, LLC settled two separate cases for $22,000 in lieu of litigation.  Royal Oak Enterprises manufactured Sam’s Choice Professional Quality Instant Charcoal Briquettes products for the Wal-Mart Corporation and the Grill It Premium Odorless Charcoal Lighter product for the Target Corporation.  None of the products were certified as a Charcoal Lighter material by ARB at the time of purchase and one product was not marked with a date of manufacture as required under the Consumer Products Regulation.  In addition, the company failed to submit a date code explanation for the second product.  The company has since applied for certification and has corrected the product dating violations.
