DOE issued a Notice of Noncompliance Determination to Grainger International Inc. finding that freezer models, privately labeled as the Dayton 5NTX4, the Dayton 5NTX5, and the Dayton 5NTX6 do not comport with the energy conservation standards. Grainger must immediately notify each person (or company) to whom Grainger distributed the noncompliant products that the products do not meet Federal standards. Grainger had already provided to DOE documents and records showing the number of units Grainger distributed and to whom. The manufacturer and/or private labeler of the product may be subject to civil penalties.
