On July 30, 2018, citizen enforcer Anthony E. Held, Ph.D., P.E. and settling party Bradshaw International, Inc. (“Bradshaw”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Held had alleged that Bradshaw sold measuring cups 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, Essendant agreed not to sell any measuring cups with exterior designs in California after August 3, 2018, unless the measuring cups contain less than 90 parts per million of lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $21,500, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to citizen enforcer Held and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
