Posted: 04/09/2018  browse the case archive

The parties involved in the case Vinocur v. Streamlight, Inc. executed a Consent Judgment on April 9, 2018.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Laurence Vinocur alleged that Streamlight, Inc. (“Streamlight”) sold portable lighting products containing the phthalate chemical di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (“DEHP”) and the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.  

As part of the agreement, Streamlight agreed not to sell any portable lighting products in California after the San Francisco County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the products contain no more than 1,000 parts per million (“ppm”) of DEHP and/or 90 ppm of lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $57,500, 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.
