Posted: 02/21/2019  browse the case archive
On February 21, 2019, citizen enforcer Laurence Vinocur and settling party Peter Pauper Press, Inc. (“Peter Pauper”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Vinocur had alleged that Peter Pauper sold vinyl wall decals 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 settlement, Peter Pauper agreed not to sell any vinyl wall decals in California after February 21, 2019, unless the decals contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP, butyl benzyl phthalate (“BBP”), di-n-butyl phthalate (“DBP”), di-isodecyl phthalate (“DIDP”) , diisononyl phthalate (“DINP”), and di-n-hexyl phthalate (“DnHP”) when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $26,000, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to citizen enforcer Vinocur and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
