In 1997 toy maker Hasbro, Inc. ran afoul of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over how to label the new line of anti-bacterial toys sold by its subsidiary, PlaySkool®. The case asks students to play the role of the General Counsel for Hasbro, determine what questions to ask their client, draft a press release to communicate to the public and respond to the EPA's actions, and draft language to re-label the toys. The problem fits in the general category of avoiding trouble or distributing losses that have already occurred.
