Moore v. Travelpro International, Inc.

Posted: 06/06/2011  browse the case archive

On June 6, 2011, citizen enforcer John Moore and settling defendant Travelpro International, Inc. ("Travelpro"), entered into an out-of-court Settlement Agreement, which resolved Moore's allegations that Travelpro sold luggage tags containing the phthalate chemical di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate ("DEHP") in the State of California without providing the health hazard warnings required by Proposition 65.

As part of the settlement, Travelpro agreed not to sell any luggage tags in California after June 5, 2011, unless the luggage tags contain less than 0.1 percent (1,000 parts per million) 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.
