Meyer's Bakery Clean Air Act Settlement

SAN FRANCISCO - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice today announced a $3.5 million settlement with Meyer's Bakery, headquartered in Little Rock, Ark., resulting from violations under the Clean Air Act. The agreement represents the largest settlement in the history of the EPA's stratospheric ozone protection program.

Meyer's Bakery, located in Arizona City, Ariz.; Orlando, Fla.; Hope, Ark.; Wichita, Kan.; and Cleburne, Texas, released thousands of pounds of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) through unrepaired appliance leaks. Operators did not conduct leak checks, complete service records or develop a retrofit or replacement plan for leaking systems.
