Wozniak v. A.L. Schutzman Company, Inc.

Posted: 09/08/2015  browse the case archive

Citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak and settling party A.L. Schutzman ( “Schutzman”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement on September 8, 2015.  Wozniak had alleged that Schutzman sold glass jars with exterior designs containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, Schutzman agreed not to sell any glass jars with exterior designs in California after September 8, 2015, unless the jars contain less than 90 parts per million of lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $26,525, 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.
