Citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's action against Winfield Brooks Company, Inc. concluded on June 6, 2002 when a Consent Judgment was executed in DiPirro v. Winfield Brooks Company, Inc., resolving DiPirro's allegations that Winfield Brooks sold cutting and tapping fluids containing the toxin tetrachloroeothylene in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, Winfield agreed to place Proposition 65 health hazard warnings on the covered products in conformity with Section 1.1 of the Consent Judgment.

The Consent Judgment requires settlement payments of $19,100 in civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower DiPirro.
