Posted: 06/05/2018  browse the case archive
The parties involved in the case Englander v. Dollar General Corporation executed a Consent Judgment on June 5, 2018.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Peter Englander alleged that Dollar General Corporation (“Dollar General”) sold vinyl/PVC ID holder 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 agreement, Dollar General agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC ID holder components in California after the San Francisco County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the ID holder components contain no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.
The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $25,800, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Englander and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
