The Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal reports that:
3M agreed Tuesday to pay a $1.5 million penalty to the Environmental Protection Agency for 244 violations of the Toxic Substances Control Act, for using unsafe chemicals in its products, according to media reports.
The EPA, which did not specify when and where the violations happened, accused 3M of failing to notify the agency about new chemicals and of late reporting of “substantial risk information.”
The fine is large by EPA standards, although it is considered small for a large corporate company like 3M.
