LOS ANGELES (AP) - Neutrogena will pay more than $400,000 to settle a civil action filed after state inspectors found several hazardous-waste violations at the cosmetic company’s Los Angeles manufacturing facility.

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control announced the settlement Thursday.

Inspectors found in 2010 that Neutrogena workers were treating hazardous materials in a wastewater treatment system without a permit. The complaint also alleged that workers failed to perform several precautionary steps in storing and disposing of its hazardous waste.

The LA-based company brought the plant up to code that same year.

Neutrogena manufactures cosmetics and skin care products.
