Held Settles with Trimaco Re: DINP in Gloves

TCG client Dr. Anthony E. Held has negotiated a settlement with Trimaco regarding alleged violations of Proposition 65.  Held alleged that Trimaco sold vinyl/PVC gloves that contained the phthalate chemical DINP, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer, without the requisite health hazard warning.

In addition to paying civil penalties, Trimaco has agreed to reformulate its gloves sold in California to be free of DINP.

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.
