Graco Certifies to Vinocur That Its Products Have Been Reformulated

Graco Children’s Products have certified to our client Laurence Vinocur that it now only distributes and sells padded upholstered car seats that are virtually free of the flame retardants tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP), tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (TCEP), and tris(2, 3-dibromylpropyl)phosphate (TDBPP).  As per the settlement agreement, Vinocur will waive a portion of the civil penalty that Graco would otherwise have had to pay.

For more details on the case, please see Vinocur v. Graco Children’s Products.
