Posted: 09/14/2015  browse the case archive

On September 14, 2015, citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak and settling party Magid Glove and Safety Manufacturing Company, L.L.C. ( “Magid”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement.  Wozniak had alleged that Magid sold vinyl/PVC gloves 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, Magid agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC gloves in California after September 4, 2015, 2015, unless the gloves contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $27,000, 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.
