Wozniak v. Acme United Corporation

Posted: 09/09/2019  browse the case archive
On September 9, 2019, citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak and settling party Acme United Corporation (“Acme”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Wozniak had alleged that Acme sold vinyl cutting mats containing the phthalate chemical diisononyl phthalate (“DINP”) in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings. 
As part of the settlement, Acme agreed not to sell any vinyl cutting mats in California after September 9, 2019, unless the products contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DINP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $19,300, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to citizen enforcer Wozniak and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
