Univar unit to pay $62.5 million to settle dumping allegations, U.S. says

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A subsidiary of Univar Inc has agreed to pay $62.5 million to resolve U.S. allegations that it mishandled saccharin artificial sweetener imported from China, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement on Tuesday.

Univar USA Inc evaded $36 million in antidumping duties on 36 shipments of Chinese saccharin, the department alleged, adding that the settlement would resolve a lawsuit that had been filed in the U.S. Court of International Trade.
