Whirlpool: Proposed Penalty (2013-SE-1420)

April 11, 2014

DOE alleged in a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty that Whirlpool Corporation manufactured and distributed noncompliant refrigerator-freezers in the U.S.  Federal law subjects manufacturers and private labelers to civil penalties if those parties distribute in the U.S. products that do not meet applicable energy conservation standards.  This civil penalty notice advises the company of the potential penalties and DOE's administrative process, including the company's right to a hearing.
