The parties involved in the case Moore v. The TJX Companies, Inc. executed a Consent Judgment on April 23, 2019.  In this matter, citizen enforcer John Moore alleged that The TJX Companies, Inc. (“TJX”) sold vinyl jewelry boxes 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, TJX agreed not to sell any vinyl jewelry boxes in California after the Marin County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the boxes contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP, butyl benzyl phthalate (“BBP”), di-n-butyl phthalate (“DBP”), diisodecyl phthalate (“DIDP”), diisononyl phtahlate (“DINP”), and/or di-n-hexyl phthalate (“DnHP”) when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR have Proposition 65 warnings provided. 
The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of $31,000, 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.
