Posted: 09/29/2015  browse the case archive

The parties involved in the case Moore v. Dynamic Brands, LLC executed a Consent Judgment on September 29, 2015.  In this matter, citizen enforcer John Moore alleged that Dynamic Brands, LLC (“Dynamic Brands”) sold gold bag travel covers with vinyl/PVC handles 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, Dynamic Brands agreed not to sell any golf bag covers with vinyl/PVC handles in California after the San Francisco County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the travel covers contain no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.  Any products that do not comply with the above reformulation standards shall be sold with Proposition 65 warnings provided.  Should Dynamic Brands provide written certification that all golf bag travel covers with vinyl/PVC handles sold in California qualify as reformulated by November 15, 2015, Moore agreed to waive a portion of the civil fine that would otherwise be applied.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of $42,500, 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.
