CBC News has reported that The Competition Bureau says Keurig Canada will pay a $3 million penalty for making false or misleading claims that its single-use K-Cup pods can be recycled (K-Cups aren't widely accepted for recycling in any province except Quebec and B.C.)

In a statement, the bureau reportedly says that the company voluntarily reached an agreement that will include the fine plus an $800,000 donation to an environmental charity and $85,000 in Competition Bureau expenses for the case.

Keurig reportedly agreed to settle a class-action suit in the U.S. over the same issue recently.
