Canadian company settles defective body armor allegations

Barrday Inc. and two related companies have agreed to pay the United States more than $1 million to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act in connection with their role in the weaving of fabric used in the manufacture and sale of defective bullet-proof vests.

The fabric, Zylon, was used in the manufacture of bullet-proof vests sold by several companies and purchased by the federal government as well as by various state and local law enforcement agencies.

This settlement is part of a larger investigation of the use of Zylon in body armor. The United States previously settled with four other participants in the Zylon body armor industry for over $46 million and has pending lawsuits against others.
