DuPont's 3Q Profits Match Potential Teflon Fine
EWG reported these two flagrant violations of pollution law to EPA in April 2003. In September 2004, we asked the EPA to ensure that the Agency stay true to its intent to "send a message" by imposing the maximum fine against Teflon maker DuPont.
The EPA is likely to recommend a fine amount to an EPA judge on or before November 22, 2004.
