Stellantis Mack Assembly plant hit with sixth odor violation in less than 2 years
State environmental regulators have issued yet another violation against Stellantis for noxious odors from its assembly plant on Detroit's east side.
This is the 6th violation the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy has issued against Stellantis since September 2021 for paint and solvent odors affecting residents living near the Detroit Assembly Complex Mack plant.
The department also filed two violations related to the Mack plant exceeding limits for Volatile Organic Compound emissions.
Stellantis also was assessed a $284,000 fine, and regulators have warned that the company's continued failure to address the chronic issue could result in a civil lawsuit.
Stellantis says it will have a new odor control system installed by June 30, and that its interim odor controls have reduced the problem. The company says it's investigating the most recent occurrence.
