Posted: 01/24/2018  browse the case archive

The parties involved in the case Wozniak v. CLT Computers, Inc. executed a Consent Judgment on January 24, 2018.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak alleged that CLT Computers, Inc. (“CLT”) sold headphones with vinyl/PVC cushions 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, CLT agreed not to sell any headphones with vinyl/PVC cushions in California after the San Francisco County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the headphones contain no more 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 $29,000, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Wozniak and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
