Englander v. Logo Brands, Inc.

Posted: 12/21/2017  browse the case archive

On December 21, 2017, citizen enforcer Peter Englander and settling party Logo Brands, Inc. (“Logo”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Englander had alleged that Logo sold vinyl/PVC zipper pulls 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, Logo agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC zipper pulls in California after December 21, 2017, unless the zipper pulls contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $28,400, 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.
