The parties involved in the case Wozniak v. Service Tool Company, L.L.C. executed a Consent Judgment on May 7, 2019.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak alleged that Service Tool Company, L.L.C.  (“STC”) sold electrical test kits, vinyl/PVC electrical tape, and voltage testers with vinyl/PVC cords containing di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, (“DEHP”), diisononyl phthalate (“DINP”), di-n-butyl phthalate (“DBP”), and/or the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.  

As part of the agreement, STC agreed not to sell any of the above products in California after the Marin County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the products are virtually free of DEHP, DINP, DBP, and/or lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies or have Proposition 65 warnings provided.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $43,600, 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.
