Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 130 / Tuesday, July 8, 2014 / Notices Foundation and the Observatory. We have also prepared an EA titled, ‘‘Issuance of an Incidental Harassment Authorization to Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory to Take Marine Mammals by Harassment Incidental to a Marine Geophysical Survey in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean, June–August, 2014,’’ and FONSI in accordance with NEPA and NOAA Administrative Order 216–6. We provided relevant environmental information to the public through our notice of proposed Authorization (79 FR 14779, March 17, 2014) and considered public comments received prior to finalizing our EA and deciding whether or not to issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). We concluded that issuance of an Incidental Harassment Authorization would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and have issued a FONSI. Because of this finding, it is not necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement for the issuance of an Authorization to the Observatory for this activity. Our EA and FONSI for this activity are available upon request (see ADDRESSES). Christopher J. Kirkpatrick, 202–418– 5964. Dated: July 2, 2014. Todd A. Stevenson, Secretary. Christopher J.

PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION In the Matter of: HMI Industries Inc. CPSC Docket No.: 14–C0003 SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT 1. In accordance with the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA), 15 U.S.C. §§ 2051–2089 and 16 C.F.R. § 1118.20, HMI Industries Inc. (HMI), and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission), through its staff (staff), hereby enter into this Settlement Agreement (Agreement). The Agreement and the incorporated attached Order (Order) resolve staff’s charges set forth below. THE PARTIES 2. The Commission is an independent federal regulatory agency established pursuant to, and responsible for, the enforcement of the CPSA. By executing this Agreement, staff is acting on behalf of the Commission, pursuant to 16 C.F.R. § 1118.20(b). The Commission issues the Order under the provisions of the CPSA. 3. HMI is a corporation, organized and existing under the laws of the state of Delaware with its principal corporate office located in Strongsville, Ohio. HMI is a manufacturer of floor cleaners and indoor air purifiers. STAFF CHARGES 4. Between September 2004 and August 2006, HMI manufactured and distributed approximately 44,000 Filter Queen Majestic 360 floor cleaners (Subject Products, or Floor Cleaners). The Floor Cleaners were sold through independent distributors nationwide for approximately $1,800. 5. The Floor cleaners are ‘‘consumer products,’’ and at all relevant times, HMI was a ‘‘manufacturer’’ of these consumer products, which were ‘‘distributed in commerce,’’ as those terms are defined or used in sections 3(a)(5) and (11), of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. § 2052(a)(5) and (11). 6. The Floor Cleaners are defective because their wiring can overheat, causing electrical arcing and melting. This poses a burn hazard to consumers. 7. HMI received notice of the defect shortly after distribution began in September 2004. Between 2005 and 2008, HMI received hundreds of reports of electrical arcing, sparking, and fire, including reports of property damage E:\FR\FM\08JYN1.SGM 08JYN1
