LG Fridges To Lose Energy Star Label Saturday
The U.S. Department of Energy announced earlier this month that some LG French-door refrigerator/freezers will lose their Energy Star accreditation, and the removal will be effective later this week. LG has responded by suing the department.
“The Energy Star label is a critical tool for consumers looking to save energy and money with their appliances,” DOE General Counsel Scott Blake Harris said as part of the announcement. “We have found that these refrigerator-freezer models do not deliver the energy and cost savings promised under the Energy Star program, so we are taking the necessary steps to protect the American public."
