SAN FRANCISCO – An individual alleges a New Jersey company that distributes products in California failed to warn consumers regarding certain chemicals used in hoses.
Arthur Zivkovic filed a complaint on March 29 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Co. Inc. and Does 1 through 100 citing Proposition 65.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants use di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, di-isodecyl phthalate and diisononyl phthalate in PVC air hoses. The plaintiff holds Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Co. Inc. and Does 1 through 100 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to warn the consumers of the possible health risk of being exposed to the harmful chemicals found in their air hoses.
The plaintiff seeks civil penalties of $2,500 per day, permanent injunction against the defendants, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Noam Glick and Kelsey D. McCarthy of Glick La Group PC in San Diego and by Nicholas & Tomasevic LLP in San Diego.
