Protective Products Pays $960,000 for Sale of Defective Zylon Bulletproof Vests
Protective Products International Inc (PPI) has agreed to pay the U.S. $960,000 to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act by supplying defective Zylon bulletproof vests, the Justice Department announced today. As part of the agreement, PPI has pledged its cooperation in the government’s ongoing investigation of other entities that manufactured and sold Zylon vests purchased by the government.
In July 2005, the Justice Department intervened in a qui tam action against Second Chance Body Armor and Toyobo Co. Ltd seeking to recover damages relating to the sale of defective Zylon bulletproof vests by Second Chance. The vests manufactured by PPI also came from Toyobo, and the U.S. alleges that PPI knew that the vests were defective because the Zylon material was not appropriate for ballistics applications.
