Kellogg pays fine for violating Clean Air Act
Battle Creek-based cereal maker Kellogg has agreed to pay a big fine for violating the federal Clean Air act.
The violations occurred at Kellogg plants in Battle Creek and Grand Rapids. The government cited the cereal maker for operating without necessary permits and exceeding federal emission levels.
Some of the violations date back to 1993. The most recent violation took place in 2007.
Kellogg agreed to pay a half million dollars to resolve the case. The company also agreed to improve emission levels at the facilities and replace a cooling and dehumidifying system. That’s expected to cost nearly another half million dollars.
Kellogg released a statement, saying in part, the company ”is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our business.”
