S. Martinelli & Co. has agreed to a $128,000 settlement with the Environmental Protection Agency - over the juice company's handling of a toxic chemical.
The EPA says Martinelli didn't comply with regulations regarding the handling of a chemical used as a coolant, and that violated the Clean Air Act.
