District Attorney’s Office
Posted: 9/4/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - District Attorney Jan Scully joins 25 other California district attorneys in announcing that West Sacramento-based Raley’s supermarket was ordered to pay $1,599,000 in civil penalties, costs and supplemental environmental projects, as part of the settlement of a civil enforcement prosecution, which includes a final judgment and permanent injunction. Raley’s cooperated with the prosecution team throughout the investigation into their unlawful practices.

The judgment is the culmination of a civil enforcement lawsuit filed in San Joaquin County to stop the supermarket chain from unlawfully transporting and disposing of retail hazardous waste. The lawsuit claimed that more than 130 Raley’s supermarket stores improperly stored, handled, and disposed of hazardous waste and pharmaceutical waste products into company trash bins. Instead of being sent to authorized disposal sites, hazardous wastes and contaminated materials were being unlawfully transported to area landfills. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Raley’s failed to take sufficient steps to preserve the confidentiality of their pharmacy customers’ information.
