Wozniak v. FH Group International Inc.

Posted: 08/30/2019  browse the case archive
On August 30, 2019, citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak and settling party FH Group International Inc. (“FH Group”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Wozniak had alleged that FH Group sold vinyl seat belt pads 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, FH Group agreed not to sell any vinyl seat belt pads in California after August 30, 2019, unless the products contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $17,000, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to citizen enforcer Wozniak and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
