Moore v. Clover Needlecraft, Inc.

Posted: 10/31/2012  browse the case archive

On October 31, 2012, citizen enforcer John Moore and settling defendant Clover Needlecraft, Inc. ("Clover"), entered into an out-of-court Settlement Agreement, which resolved Moore's allegations that Clover sold pouches 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, Clover agreed not to sell any pouches in California after October 31, 2012, unless the pouches contain less than .1% of DEHP in each accessible component when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $25,000, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Moore and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
