R.J. McGlennon Co., Inc.

San Francisco, CA: In a September 2006 civil complaint, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) alleged that R.J. McGlennon did not submit timely reports for its use of methyl ethyl ketone and xylene between 2001 and 2003. The case also claimed the company failed to properly report its use of certain glycol ethers between 2001 and 2004, which it termed, a violation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act. The law requires companies using any of 650 listed toxic chemicals over certain thresholds to report their annual chemical releases to the EPA. The EPA recently reached a $28,677 settlement with R.J. McGlennon over its failure to submit annual reports about its toxic chemical releases. (Jan-30-07) [ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY: CHEMICAL RELEASE]
