The parties involved in the case Moore v. Crown Brands LLC executed a Consent Judgment on May 24, 2018.  In this matter, citizen enforcer John Moore alleged that Crown Brands LLC (“Crown”) sold vinyl/PVC gloves 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, Crown agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC gloves in California after the Marin County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the gloves contains no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies or has Proposition 65 warnings provided.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $26,500, 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.
