Englander v. Bicycle Tools Incorporated

Posted: 08/27/2018  browse the case archive
On August 27, 2018, citizen enforcer Peter Englander and settling party Bicycle Tools Incorporated (“Bicycle”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Englander had alleged that Bicycle sold gloves with vinyl/PVC components containing the phthalate chemical di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (“DEHP”) in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings. 
As part of the settlement, Bicycle agreed not to sell any gloves with vinyl/PVC components in California after August 27, 2018, unless the gloves contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies or have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $28,200, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to citizen enforcer Englander and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
