Posted: 03/25/2019  browse the case archive
The parties involved in the case Vinocur v. Channel Craft & Distribution, Inc. executed a Consent Judgment on March 25, 2019.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Laurence Vinocur alleged that Channel Craft & Distribution, Inc. (“Channel Craft”) sold game pieces 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, Channel Craft agreed not to sell any game pieces in California after the Marin County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the game pieces contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR have Proposition 65 warnings provided. 
The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $35,500, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Vinocur and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
