Held Files Complaint Against ICON Health & Fitness

Dr. Anthony E. Held has filed a complaint against ICON Health & Fitness, alleging violations of Proposition 65.  Dr. Held alleges that ICON sold exercise mats containing the phthalate chemical DEHP without the requisite health hazard warning.  DEHP is known to the State of California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm.

In addition to civil penalties, Dr. Held seeks an injunction to prevent ICON from selling exercise mats in California without a Proposition 65 warning.

The Chanler Group represents citizen enforcers who, acting in the public interest, commence actions against businesses offering products for sale in California that contain chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm without first providing the health hazard warning required by Proposition 65. Citizen enforcers bringing Proposition 65 actions in the public interest may obtain a Court Judgment imposing civil penalties, an injunction requiring reformulation of products, and/or provision of health hazard warnings
