Englander v. Pilot Inc.

Posted: 04/03/2019  browse the case archive
On April 3, 2019, citizen enforcer Peter Englander and settling party Pilot Inc. (“Pilot”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Englander had alleged that Pilot sold glass jars with exterior designs containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings. 
As part of the settlement, Pilot agreed not to sell any glass jars with exterior designs in California after April 11, 2019, unless the jars are virtually free of lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies or have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $22,500, 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.
