Maryland sues vinegar company over Jones Falls pollution

April 6, 2023

Maryland’s environmental agency filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Fleischmann’s Vinegar over allegations that its North Baltimore plant has discharged unpermitted pollutants into the Jones Falls stream. The state’s lawsuit comes a day after Blue Water Baltimore, the local environmental nonprofit, also sued Fleischmann’s and its parent company headquartered in Ireland, Kerry, Inc., in federal court for failing to meet requirements under its environmental permit with the state and for violations of the U.S. Clean Water Act.
