Wozniak v. Tee-Zed Products, LLC

Posted: 06/29/2017  browse the case archive

On June 29, 2017, citizen enforcer Paul Wozniak and settling party Tee-Zed Products, LLC (“Tee-Zed”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement.  Wozniak had alleged that Tee-Zed sold vinyl/PVC car shades 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, Tee-Zed agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC car shades in California after June 29, 2017, unless the shades contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP in any accessible component when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $25,000, 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.
