DiPirro v. Fry's Electronics, Inc., et al.

Posted: 05/28/1999  browse the case archive

Michael DiPirro and Fry's Electronics, Inc., entered into a settlement agreement on May 28, 1999, which resolved citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations that Fry's manufactured, distributed, or sold welding, brazing, and soldering products containing lead and lead compounds in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

Pursuant to the terms of the parties' settlement, beginning on June 30, 1999, Fry's was required to implement and provide specific and prominent health hazard warnings for the products that it shipped to California for sale or distribution.

The settlement requires settlement payments of $14,750, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Michael DiPirro and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
