The parties involved in the case Moore v. WinCraft Group LLC executed a Consent Judgment on January 26, 2017.  In this matter, citizen enforcer John Moore alleged that WinCraft, Incorporated (“WinCraft”) sold badge/ID holders with components 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, WinCraft agreed not to sell any badge/ID holders in California after June 1, 2017 unless the holders contain no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.  Should WinCraft furnish Moore with certification by May 15, 2017 that all badge/ID holders sold in California qualify as reformulated according to the above standards, Moore agreed to waive a portion of the civil penalties that would otherwise be applied.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $59,500, 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.
